    How do you know it is AT? It is a 1958-D after all. Based on what I'm seeing, I think it might grade.

    I don't, but I have never seen these kinds of colors before so I immediately thought it was AT. thank you for your input.

    Those colors are pretty common for an improperly stored 1958 double mint set. That isn't to say that the TPGs will find the toning market acceptable, only that I think it has a much higher chance than a coin not dated 1957 or 1958.

    There is no question in my mind that that coin is AT. Given that I was born in 1958 I collect a LOT of coins from that date. The colors shown IN THE IMAGES are not remotely close to D (or P for that matter) natural toning of that date, much less when you throw in the toning pattern(s).

    For all that, I have certainly knowingly bought AT coins of various Types at minimal markups if I like how they look. I even have a few AT Washingtons. Here's a 1961-D that IF it had been a 1958-D the colors are close enough to the standard 1958-D colors that the coin COULD certainly have been slabbed. FWIW, IMO the coin is technically somewhere between a 66 to a 66+. It cost me $11.

    I love the new proof silver quarters as well as the older silver quarters. Just picked up this 63.

    What is the reverse on the 1964-D? (C is desirable.)

    Im not sure if you meant mine, but I got out my loupe and i'm still not entirely sure. The E and S are very separated so its either B or C but then the two other points have a little wear so I dont want to make a definitive statement.

    From what I see the wreath at the bottom does not look like its touching the A but there is wear.

    The stem is also not fully attached to the leaves but there is also wear. I will post a picture tonight and let you all see.

    If I had to lean one way or another I would say C, but everyone wants their coin to be rare so thats a very loose guess haha

    The first image shoes it is not a Type B, the E and S are not lined up.

    This second photo doesnt tell me much, I feel the arrows aren't pronounced enough to sell a difference in height.

    MVIMG_20180214_183017.jpg

    The third photo makes me think A now but im still not sure. The point of the leaf at A seems curved and the point seems above the A rather than to the left of it. But the leaves on the left above LL look more similar to the type C. IMG_20180214_183234.jpg

    Type A or C?

    The differences are subtle. But the comparison photo should be some help.
    The wear on the reverse makes it harder to determine.
    Because of the arrows this circulated coin is either A or C. And because of the left leaf design next to the arrow I am leaning towards A.
    The same with Lux's coin I am leaning toward A because of the left leaf design next to the arrow, but I honestly don't know.
    You can see in the photo the second smaller leaf is well struck in C and in A it is not like both of these coins.
    The wear on the reverse makes it hard to tell. Lux's might have a shot at C.
