    bryantallard show me the money....so i can look through it

    I have 45 rolls of harper's ferry's quarters (had 50). of the 5 rolls I opened...EVERY...and I mean EVERY coin was a doubled die. I know they are not as nice as the homestead series but what you would value a roll at?

    Oldhoopster It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    Need photos. How prominent?
    There's minor doubling on everything.
    How do you know it is a DD, and, if it's on every coin, it's not rare.

    For the most part these were all very minor within the windows. Minor enough to be excruciatingly painful to discern. If every one had doubling then I would say very little value.

    Just because every roll you've opened has been populated by a single variety this in NO WAY guarantees the same will hold true for the others. I'm not saying they're not, but only suggesting you be very careful making assumptions based upon conjecture. I've lived through this and am speaking from experience.

    As for Value, you know the individual variety is necessary to make any sort of determination, but I would also suggest you not simply multiply the supposed value of one by the number of coins and assume it realistic. Again I've been there and it just doesn't work out that way.

    @Oldhoopster @Cheech9712
    out of the 7 varieties I identified 5 of them being 006, 007, 017, 045, 056, and 2 I believe to be unlisted.

    Nice capture of the doubling but I dread to think what power you had to use to show this.

    it is not a single variety but multiple. 7 different ones in the 5 rolls opened. there may be others in the box. who knows? I understand there is no guarantee, but on off chance they were? I know better than to go all in without seeing my cards so speak. I opened some rolls of homesteads that the whole box was unc except 5 quarters. which is weird in itself. I know the doubling is minor but if they were the roll were valued at say $20 then I would sell them... anything less and they come off the unc list.

    Same difference.

    My post was written under the impression you were considering selling them as full unopened OBWs and was intended to hopefully save possible hassle. Like I said I've experienced the same, but the problem is when you don't know for sure what's inside, it opens the opportunity for the buyer to claim you misled them. Although most reasonable buyers would understand you can't know the unknown, never put it past one to display the most ridiculous pettiness imaginable. Best of luck either way, Bryan. :)
