This is a 1834 capped bust quarter that I had posted on another topic. Well, I was looking at it really close tonight and noticed this strange ghost like effect on the 4 in 1834. Also, the 3 looks a little odd. Is this normal? Is it repunched? Will it effect the value?
OK, well that is something different. I was getting ready to sell this on eBay, so in your opinion, how should I go about describing it or should I not even mention it? You can't see it with the naked eye and really hard to see with a mag glass.
Appears to be obv 1. There are only two obverses known for the five varieties of 1834 and neither one is listed as having a repunched date. I see what you are talking about in the above photos but they aren't really very clear.
Thanks Conder101, what kind of camera do most coin collectors use to get close-ups. I am having a lot of difficulty using a Canon Rebel. I took many pictures trying to get better ones, but these are the best I could do. So if it is a obv 1, what does that do to the value of the coin if anything? Thanks again.
