Starting in 1925 there was a small design change for the Standing Liberty quarters. This design change made the date recessed into the coin, rather than elevated. The change was made because the date on circulated coins was getting hard to read. In some cases the date was completely worn off and so those coins were getting returned to the mint. This small change was successful at eliminating the problem.

There is no mint mark for this coin and it was only minted in Philadelphia. 1925 D quarters or 1925 S quarters do not exist.
