The design of the Standing Liberty Quarter was completed by Hermon Atkins MacNeil in 1916 and featured on the US quarter through 1930. Traditionally, US coin designs have been mandated to feature on coins for 25 years before each can be considered for replacement. The Barber Quarter that the Standing Liberty Quarter replaced, for example, was on the US quarter for 23 years and eventually removed because of a broader movement to replace all US coin denominations.
The Standing Liberty Quarter design would go on to feature on the 25-cent piece for just 14 years because it lacked broad support and was not popular with the public. The obverse design was modified twice after the original design debuted and the reverse element once. The design was so unpopular no new US quarters were produced in 1931 and the 1932 date mark revealed the new, and current, Washington Quarter design.
The obverse face of 90% Silver Standing Liberty Quarters includes a depiction of the goddess Liberty standing between two small sections of wall. The words “In God We Trust” are inscribed on the wall sections and Liberty holds a shield in one hand to defend the nation, with an olive branch in the other symbolizing hope for peace.
On the reverse side, 90% Silver Standing Liberty Quarters come with the design of an American bald eagle gliding in flight with its wings at full stretch. The inscriptions on this side of the coin include “United States of America,” “E Pluribus Unum,” and “Quarter Dollar.”

Please note that you are most likely to receive a wide range of date marks on the coins in your bag.
