Metal Detected 1891-s Seated Liberty quarter

Thanks for your input on what a coin like this might be graded at. I am wondering if it would be reasonable to have this coin slabbed with PCGS.


Thanks,

I am no pro but from what I know your coin is only worth about $35-$45. So grading would cost as much as the coin is worth. In addition it looks like it has been cleaned, if so PCGS will not assign it a grade. Hope this helps. anyone else feel free to correct me, as I am still learning myself. Cory

This is a terrific find for a metal detector and might just be priceless as a souvenir. However, it is a common date within the Seated Liberty quarter series. This piece would almost certainly be flagged as a "problem" coin with environmental damage by PCGS. Even if it were a problem-free VF the value would not justify spending the money to have it graded.

I say just enjoy the coin. Better yet, go back to the site and see if there are any more out there! Maybe you'll find a rare date for which certification would be appropriate.

Thanks folks for the responses so far.
Yeah, the faint scratches are from trying to be careful extracting the coin from some hard clay.
I did rinse the coin under tap water and dish soap.
Funny how the coin somehow looks very scrubbed or cleaned.

Thanks again...

Nice find although I agree that it won't grade problem free. Still lots of detail and I never found anything like that the dozen or so times I metal detected! Welcome to the forum.
