  3. Came from a roll with all same quarters. Does this mean that if I put these up in something that protects the that they will be like me 60 something and as valuable as coin facts says? Because Ms 67 said over $2,000. IMG_20200213_233659_5.jpg IMG_20200213_233612_6.jpg

    I thought I was the only one getting 10-15 y/o rolls of BU Quarters from the bank.:)
  5. Is it bulk uncirculated?
  6. On coin facts it says that a Ms 67 is worth over 2,000. Is this a Ms quarter?

    BU=Brilliant Uncirculated. They rarely use that term anymore. Now it's MS-Mint State.
    If a 2005 West Virginia Quarter, MS 67, sold for $2,000 there had to be something special about the coin. You can buy MS 68 West Va. Quarters on eBay for less than $20. Your coin appears to be MS but I couldn't give it a grade number from just a photo.
    MS grades go from MS 60 to MS 70.
  8. Ok. Just proud that I have a Ms anything! It's a start.

    I am guessing no. There are to many minted. Wait for more opinions...

    MS67 only counts if it's certified by a top-tier TPG (third-party grading service) like PCGS or NGC. For modern business strike coins, let's say hypothetically that it's literally one in a million, if not one in ten million, that makes the top grade at a TPG.

    Your chances of making an MS67 are infinitesimally small. Despite the blurriness of the photo I can see marks on that coin which would hold it down to no better than MS63 or so.

    OK, so let's hypothetically say you did pay your money and sent your coin off for professional grading and actually got a condition-census rarity like an MS67 in a series where such grades are seldom seen. You're still not necessarily going to get the big payday. Those priceguides are wildly inflated and need to be taken with an enormous grain of salt, especially for modern coins.

    I can't see where this is a 2005 W. What am I looking for?

    I've never heard them refereed to that way. And, it doesn't make sense with the "W" Mint coins floating around out there. Thanks for the clarification.

    IMO These coins will be worth very little years down the road. When the mint stops making these long runs of quarters and gold dollars the price will go up slightly and then taper off as new hot potatoes start flooding the market. There are 5 different quarters per year, from 4 different mints, in several grades. That is a bunch of coins all too many of them are sold at a premium. Same thing with the gold dollars. Don't count on any of them going up substantially.
