I'm ten years old and I'm entering a contest where the contestants will
have to write a 4-5 page essay on a selected coin.  I decided to use the
standing liberty quarter because it has an interesting story behind it.  I
got interested by an article in Coin World magazine.  If anyone has any
information, interesting facts or can point me to any resouces, please
reply. (My name is Jennifer Castagna and I'm using my mom's e-mail
address.)  Thankyou!!!!!

Susan,  Since what you are doing is an educational project part of the
goal is to learn the research process.

I suggest you check out

as a beginning to gather information for your paper.

Good luck,

Hello, Jennifer.  Sounds like a neat contest.  There is a book called
"Standing Liberty Quarters" written by J. H. Cline which is full of a
lot of interesting stuff about this coin.  I think it should be in
your local library.  Good Luck.  Aram(Bustpoet)

Hello Jennifer,

J.H. Cline wrote a whole book on Standing Liberty Quarters.  One of your
local coin shops might carry it.  The first 75 pages covers the story, the
controversy, copies of the letters with Herman McNeilI and the Mint, etc,
and the last 50 pages is an in-depth look at the numismatic aspects of the
individual dates and mintmarks.  It was published quite a few years ago,
however.  If it is no longer in print and you can't find a copy, let me
know and I will send you a xerox copy of the book.

Hi.  Have you seen the latest issue of either Coin World or Numismatic
News (I've forgotten which) with a really good article, IMHO,
regarding "The Controversy" and a very plausible alternative
explanation of the addition of chain mail to Miss Liberty?   Very
thought-provoking, I thought.  The idea that the covering added
to the clothing was because of our entrance into WW1 is an
intriguing one, new to me.  The lack of evidence supporting the
notion that it was due to prudery seems to bolster the author's
position.  Aram (Bustpoet)

Jennifer:
An excellent reference book on Standing Liberty quarters is Standing
Liberty Quarters by J.H. Cline. Also, periodicals you could refer to would
include Numismatic News, which is published weekly, just like Coin World.
There was a great article on the front page of the Jan. 13 issue of Coin
World.
Good luck with your article.

I've heard this argument before.  I'm inclined to respect Cline's skills
as a researcher.  If he couldn't find evidence to sort this out, I imagine
we'll never know for sure.  Has anyone thought of going through 1916
newspapers on microfilm to see if there were any outraged letters to the
editor and the like?  It might make a nice project for an interested
numismatist and I'm sure one of our hobby's periodicals would be
interested in publishing the results.

Photocopying such copyrighted material is a no-no, and expensive too.
The book is available from Brooklyn Coin Gallery for the amazing sum
of $8 plus shipping.

While the information provided about the actual coinage is quite limited,
the book does have a very nice section detailing the history that lead
up to the production of the coin.  Check the bookreview page pointer
from my home page.

I mentioned "if the book is out of print".  Last I heard it was legal to
xerox an book no longer in press.

No way Andrew, copyright life runs ( ? 75 years) even then you can't
be sure it hasn't been extended by author/ or heirs unless you do a
lot of checking. Post up above indicated cost was only $ 8.00.

Alan, as a writer, you could probably tell us how many years the
copyright is in force for? Or should we ask David Gantz?
