I am not a specialist in these those and would defer to their opinion on how they view the series.
All slushy and black around it ? Added ? I could be wrong though.
I do agree with Sal...I'm seeing a cleaned and retoned coin..... and as Sal has stated the mint mark filled and the dirt around it screams to me..fake.
Sal are you trying to put me out of business lol.... start calling you Hawk Eye jr. In all seriousness I do believe that you hit it on the head...a fake ....good call.
I am simply curious. These issues are known for mint marks being very recessed, hence there is almost always dirt around them since they were punched deep into the die. Also, weren't the mintmarks pretty filled on this issue? How, from a photo, can someone see solder? Maybe cleaned at one time, though I am not seeing much evidence of that either.
Just wondering. I looked at the motto on the obverse so that is correct. If someone was going to add a mintmark why do it to a coin with that rim ding? I probably have 20 better 1932s at home than this one.
I simply believe that this coin would need to be seen in hand to make such a call. If the depression is correct I would call BS on the added mintmark. Some coins simply have more three dimensional features in others that a photo cannot pick up. Mint marks on 1932 quarters I believe is one of those. If the field around the MM is flat of course an obvious fake.
Maybe my eyes just aren't as good.
It's your money... your call...you asked us we gave you our honest opinion....I wouldn't touch it .
And my eyes are sharp.....proven here many times....its a fake
My bad you're not the op but my message stands...the mm was added to this coin.
Its not slabed because its fake.
The light toning looks like the coin may have been in an album for a while. My circulated 32-D and 32-S have been in a Dansco for the last 25-30 years.
As @medoraman pointed out, the mint marks are recessed and can give the appearance of an added mintmark, particularly circulated coins that can pick up dirt and toning in the recessed pocket. Based on the pics, something may be a little off and there MIGHT be some solder or glue around the edges, however, without looking at the coin in hand, I cannot confirm or condemn it as an added mm.
As @medoraman also pointed out, I believe there are confirming charcteristics in the motto, but I can't remember precisely and have been unable to find any links
@Mojavedave have you asked the seller for better pictures?
If it looks bad, it's good.
If it looks good, it's bad.
I haven't examined enough myself to offer an opinion, though.
the seller has decent feedback and a lot of coin transactions, so that part is likely legit. It's not a "fly by night" person at least. the notch in the rim has flattening opposite of it on the other side on the rim, I don't think it was intentional damage.... the hit on it is "legit" LOL
I don't like it. but at a low enough price... that's a tough one.
Yes, I agree, and the dark area around the D is from the heat needed to make the solder adhere. Silver is not the easiest metal to solder to.
There's no hint of the inside of the D because it's filled with solder.
