Jay H. Cline devoted his entire life and career to the Standing Liberty Quarter designed by Hermon MacNeil.

We will devote four postings in August 2023 to this dedicated numismatist. 

Serious collectors and MacNeil enthusiasts will also enjoy Cline’s book.

Cline  wrote the first definitive volume on MacNeil’s Standing Liberty Quarter.  He told his own story as a young boy collecting his first of MacNeil’s quarter design.

He became a coin dealer.  MacNeil’s work became his specialty and love.   He researched, wrote, revised his book through Four Editions.
