    I’m pretty sure this is a business strike, the rims don’t look squared off enough but I could use some help confirming. 559AF725-F991-4980-9AC3-A9DCB1E55395.png

    That is one fine looking coin. Photos of the reverse?
    My 1892 is prob AG-03 but I like it because it is the first year of the series.

    You should really put that in a capsule holder or something so it does not get fingerprints on it or dropped. It is a really nice coin.

    If mine it would find itself inside an air-tite .... quickly. Or sent off to a TPG.

    I don’t own it, yet. It’s stunning, but it’s being sold as a proof and I don’t think it is. I collect barber quarters but only business strikes so far.

    It's a beautiful coin for sure, but I question that toning, especially on the reverse...?

    I don’t know how many die pairs were used to strike 1892 proof halves (at least 2), but this coin does not match the two I found.

    Looks like a business strike but the toning is not market acceptable IMO, and the coin looks like it might have been lightly polished. The cheek just looks wrong to me.

    Very nice looking. Looks like a business strike. Put it in an air tight holder to protect it.

    physics-fan3.14 You got any more of them.... prooflikes?

    I agree on all points. AU business strike, polished and artificially toned.

    no need for more pictures.

    Not a proof, circulation strike.

    also, cleaned and retoning.

    That coin has been messed with in multiple ways. You can find TONS of beautiful Barber proof quarters for reasonable prices all over the place no need to gamble on a set of angled pictures like this that hides everything.
