    2.5$ AU 1925-D Indian head. What would you figure the value at?

    Sorry but that's a terrible picture. Why is it non gradeable?

    I agree we need more info and/or better pictures. It it harshly cleaned? Solder damage on reverse? Etc. If just a light cleaning, still probably a $235+ coin right now.

    I wouldn't go much higher than melt on a common-date quarter eagle that's flagged as a problem coin. In reality, that just means I almost never get to buy them; they do still trade well above melt.

    They sell as-is for $250+ all day on ebay. So while they may only be worth melt to some, they are obviously worth more.

    And common date ASE's with handling damage sell at pawn shops for $30. That doesn't mean that they're *worth* that price.

    The label indicates code 92 (cleaned or polished).

    Thanks, from that one photo I can't tell anything.

    You're begging the definition of "worth". You can't easily go out and find a cleaned quarter eagle for melt, and that means they're worth more than melt.

    Well, to someone they are. And if I'm the one selling, it would only make sense to sell to the highest bidder.

    It's very simple. Just look up the serial number.

    Pretty sure they'd have a title on there if it was. But it's just plain old genuine nongradeable.

    I’m telling you: the label has 92 where the grade would normally be next to the serial number. That means either cleaned or polished. If you can’t tell that by looking at the coin, either it’s a fairly light cleaning, or you need to learn more about how to detect cleaned coins.
