    Hello everyone, I found this Quarter in the box of misc coins of my new collection.

    I do not know a lot about it, can anyone help with the grade and value?

    Any help would be appreciated..

    Thank you

    And worth about $5.00 melt value, maybe a little more on eBay.

    Unfortunately, it would be tough to pull any premium over melt, but it's long been my opinion that if one is going to hold junk silver, it might as well be so-called "better" junk (low grade SLQ over an early 60's Washington as an example). Grade-wise, the obverse could arguably be labeled VG, but is brought down by the reverse which is G at best.

    I agree whole-heartedly with this sentiment.

    Not so much with this one.

    I'd be careful grading this a VG. The rims are worn almost if not completely down to the letters. That would be more typical of a coin that grades AG. So IMHO, even grading this a solid G is pushing the envelope.

    This explanation much better than my overgeneralized one (thank you). The point I was trying to make was more with how such a coin would/could be offered, and less with its technical grade. While you are (of course) correct, I would be surprised to see this coin selling (stand alone) labeled as an AG. As with most anything raw, the "should be" and "would be" rarely match.. if you know what I mean. :)

    Looks to have been polished at one point, too.

    Thank you
