Hey, I came across the below from 302179478713

I was wondering if the quarter on the right could be identified. There appears to be a bit of a diagonal mark coming towards the 3, but it looks to be way too low to be the back tip of an arrow. I'm unsure about this one. It looks like if there were an arrow, it would be quite obvious, despite the wear

Not quite sure about your question, but the 1853 quarter has to be the arrows and rays variety. There were 1853 quarters without arrows and rays, but none with rays and without arrows. The piece in question is just worn to the point that the arrows are gone. That is a bit unusual in that the reverse usually shows more wear than the obverse but the alternative explanation is that this is a previously unknown "no arrows, with rays" variety. Pretty darn unlikely!
