    I had been on the hunt for a 1924 SLQ for some time and finally won this one. These are the seller's photos. GTG, let me know if I did OK, thanks.

    MS-63... And I am on the fence for a "FH" designation.

    You can't GTG when it isn't slabbed.

    Who am I guessing against?

    Nice strike! I'll go MS-62 FH.

    The sellers images don't make it easy but I'm thinking 63 maybe 64. The reverse looks to have nice luster but tough to say much about the obverse.

    From the obverse pic, I was going to say AU details cleaned.

    Well, based on those crappy pics, I'm gonna guess it's better than it shows: 64 FH :eek:

    dont know grade but i can tell you it has the obverse clash thats known for this series, you can see the imprint of the E from E PLURIBUS UNUM to the left of her knee, cant see it on yours but sometimes theres also a light imprint of a star above her shoulder, behind her head...

    one of mine..

    Hard to tell from those pics. I’d say 63 and possibly cleaned

    Thanks, UR right. Maybe I should have asked, "Assess the grade," instead. I am not schooled enough in coin assessment to assign a grade. The seller said this about his coin for sale:

    I'll be surprised if it is cleaned when in hand, but he gladly refunds if I'm not happy. Seller calls this a common date, but after watching these for the better part of three months, all of the 1924 coins I've seen that I thought deserved a second look sold for much higher than I was willing to pay. Some guy much smarter than I am is purported to have said that we pay our money and we take our chances. I chose to bid on this one instead of this slabbed one, which is a nicer coin, admittedly. I didn't think this one is worth $200 more than I paid for the one I won.

    Thanks. This encourages me to send it to NGC.

    63. Cleaned, possibly. Looks more like dipped to me.

    I don’t see wear but the coin definitely has a “dipped out” appearance. I’m assigning an MS62 net grade.

    I agree...MS62.

    $85? I'd have jumped on that too. Certainly a nice example, but there's just something about that obverse photo......looks funky to me. Please do post some photos once you have it in hand so we can have a better look at it.

    Yours is raw. That one is certified. A number of us have raised the possibility that your coin may be cleaned, or overdipped. While I don’t see a justifiable $200 difference in the two coins, the certified one is worth at least $100 more than yours, as TPG grading, while far from infallible, certainly vindicates a problem-free coin.
