Standing Liberty Quarter, full, readable date. No holes, no grime, no slicks, no junk silver -- just a nice collectible silver coin. You will receive one coin in a nice presentation velveteen bag. Some coin history: A silver U.S. Standing Liberty quarter dollar, dated between 1917-1930. These coins are in average circulated condition, with heavy wear but all major design details intact. The Standing Liberty design features Lady Liberty holding an olive branch in one hand and a shield in the other. The design is heavily symbolic, as the coins were first produced during the outbreak of WWI - Liberty faces the East and bears her shield in that direction, showing that she is ready to face the threat of European war but still holds out hope for peace with the olive branch in her other hand. While the first iteration of the design in 1916 featured a bare-breasted Lady Liberty, a 1917 revision clad Liberty in a chainmail top. The Standing Liberty quarter dollar series was one of several new coin designs introduced in the first decades of the 20th century, the ultimate result of Teddy Roosevelt's efforts to beautify the nation's coinage. The Walking Liberty replaced the Barber quarter design, which had been used since 1892 and was not considered particularly attractive or notable. The Standing Liberty quarter was popular with the public throughout its tenure, until it was ultimately replaced by the Washington quarter design in 1932.

Professionally converted for accurate flowing-text e-book format reproduction, this unique book examines the costs and benefits of fielding a propeller driven lightweight ground attack aircraft to support air operations in counter insurgency and stability operations.Since 2001, U.S. Air Force fighter aircraft have flown combat sorties with abnormally high flight durations while participating in Operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom. These longer sortie durations have added previously unanticipated flight time to aging airframes thereby reducing the expected service life of the U.S. Air Force's legacy fighter fleet. Fielding a lightweight ground attack aircraft could enable the U.S. Air Force to redeploy the bulk of its legacy fighter fleet to home stations and resume non-contingency operations. This would effectively reduce annual flight times and thereby extend expected service life. This study will use a document review to determine the expected economic impact, combat capability, survivability, and potential roles and missions relative to fielding a lightweight ground attack aircraft.
