Also I was once told by a dealer who was an expert: "If the mint-mark is a mis-shapen blob, that's been worn to the point that you can barely make it out on a low grade 32 Washington quarter, it's probably an authentic D or S mintmark." The mintmarks you've displayed in the photos fit the bill imo.
Again though, I will defer a true opinion until the experts on this forum weigh in.
Yep. I agree that this is true, and that they are very likely real.
He can't. He got them in a collection that he bought.........
I agree with Race as well. The phrase as I heard it was "if it looks good it isn't, if it looks bad it is good". Those years had blob of a mintmark, and a depression where the mintmark was punched.
My guess on the grade is VG-8 details due to harsh cleaning.
we should up grade them for being key dates?
Point being, there valuable.
I have a 1913-S Type II Nickel that's been acid-bathed I'll sell ya if you think harshly cleaned coins in bad condition are anywhere near as valuable as un-cleaned. It goes for 250 in G4 and I'd be lucky to get 10 bucks for it.
@ the OP: They look good to me, but I'm certainly not an expert on Washingtons. I don't see anything that would indicate them being either altered or added.
They are both valued at the $100 to $125 each even in that condition, I bought a collection late last year with almost the same looking washingtons. When I got rid of the 32 D and S that what they brought.
Man, you did well then. I agree if they were simply G-VG they should bring that, but with harsh cleaning marks? I do not see that kind of value myself.
I think that is a fair trade then sir. Hopefully you have a Washington set and enjoy them.
I sold a 1932 D in much better shape on eBay recently and only got 1 bid for $50. This seems to be one coin that sells for below the book value judging from completed eBay auctions. Here's the one I sold.
