USA 25-CENTS (KM164a) Bald Eagle
After soaring on the 'Standing Liberty Quarter' for 13 years, the Bald Eagle came to roost on the 'Washington Quarter' in 1932, a silver coin that was downgraded to this copper-nickel clad copper version which continues to this day (except when state quarters are being issued).
The eagle is clutching a bundle of arrows, presumably as a show of power. That may be an olive branch underneath, but I am not certain of that.
