Gfhcoins's 1923 Standing Liberty Quarter Choice Au+ Better Date #9109

This is Gfhcoins's 1923 Standing Liberty Quarter Choice Au+ Better Date #9109.

It was designed by Hermon Atkins MacNeil, who won a competition to redesign the coin. Type One (1916-1917) featured Liberty on the obverse and an American eagle in flight on the reverse. Liberty carries an upraised shield in her left hand and an olive branch in her right hand; most notably, this coin was the only circulating coin to feature Liberty with a bare breast. There is some controversy over who modeled for the Standing Liberty Quarter, but it was either Doris Doscher or another Broadway actress, Irene MacDowell.
