More common than their 1923 counterparts and among the last of the Variety II coins, 1924 Standing Liberty quarters represent a good, all-around purchase for type set coin collectors and Standing Liberty enthusiasts alike. Nearly 17 million quarters were minted in 1924, which makes that year among the most common of the pre-1925 Standing Liberty quarters.
Here’s a precise breakdown of 1924 Standing Liberty quarters, including their mintages and values:
1924 – 10,920,000; $20
1924-D – 3,112,000; $65
1924-S – 2,860,000; $30
*Values are for coins in a grade of Good-4.
As with all Standing Liberty quarters, don’t rush in buying the first 1924 specimens you lay your eyes on. Take your time in buying any Standing Liberty quarter, and avoid pieces with mushy-looking details. Coins with clear, crisp features look great in any coin collection and tend to do better when the time comes to sell them.
Full-head quarters (often abbreviated “FH”) are the most attractive and highly desirable. Though FH Standing Liberty quarters cost significantly more than “regular” specimens, the extra investment could pay dividends down the road should you decide to sell your coins. While there’s no such thing as a “guaranteed” investment in coins, it is quite true that true connoisseurs of the Standing Liberty series go head over heels for Full Head specimens.
