    Too bad the obverse has a few reed hits and lacerations on the neck, because it’s just a hair off center. The reverse is in good shape considering it was found in circulation. I’m happy and will keep it until a better one comes along.

    Only at the West Point mint, and only on 2020 quarters. The V75 privy is to commemorate the ending of WWII.

    I think you need to adjust your lighting. What set-up are you using?

    Those are taken at work. Work space LEDs, which are blinding. Need to start taking pics at home, but lots going on there, if you know what i mean.

    Since the WW2 medals came out I've wondered why it was called a "privy" mark. I grew up at a time when a privy was a toilet. I just searched it and found I wasn't wrong. From the Cambridge English Dictionary, and others: "privy definition: 1. to be told information that is not told to many people: 2. a toilet, especially in a very small….". I would have chosen a different term.

    I get washed out pix too. What I did to help remove it is not as much bright artificial lighting. I had the coin sitting on my bed comforter and had the blinds set to where a lot of natural light comes into the bedroom. Seems to work out ok. Only thing I did to the coin before taking pix is dipped it in rubbing alcohol and let it dry. Wanted to remove any dirt, grime, etc. before allowing it to touch anything in my house.

    We should be so lucky, all we get out here in the Northwest is P and D. We want a W we have to order it, go figure. I won't give up looking though. Thanks for posting yours.

    ACoinJob There are still some out there to be had.

    ANACS graded my first Weir Farm quarter a MS 66. The second one I have is still yet in the process of being graded, and hopefully it pulls in at a whopping MS 67. Same with my Lowell Massachusetts W 25 Cent coin too. I want it to be a MS 67+ on it. Afterall, they have hardly any BAG MARKS whatsoever on them. I spent a grand in looking for them in Loomis Rolls, and that which was from the bank. I feel as if I earned them. Yours looks nice though too.

    I wish there were some "W" Quarters in our neck of the woods. We are so backward that our neighbors sold all of their trees for the money. They don't care about the little men. I've taken home several rolls of quarters. I don't know who rolls them. The rolls are a mixture of circulated coins that are between bad to horrible condition. One time the teller asked me what I was looking for. I told her the truth and now she is searching to no avail. It's a credit union and the employees try to help as much. They let me have rolls of all that I ask, but the rolls don't seem to have anything special. Anyway, thanks for sharing.
