What do you guys think? The O seems to be in the exact location of an 1852 O.

Weight: 5.1 grams









I know, I know, I know, "Don't take pictures of coins in flips!" But I have had these pictures for a while, and didn't want to take more pictures unless someone asked for them.

I give, but most curious. Tough date! Is it possible to identify a coin simply by the MM position?

I really don't know. The mintmark matches perfectly but it's hard to tell for sure.

No way to verify the date; but the eagle does look like it's laying an egg.

Is it in the exact location for other dates? Have you checked each year and each New Orleans reverse die from 1840 to 1860 and systematically ruled them out? If not, your logic in identifying the date on this coin in flawed.
Life is like a box of chocolates. A cheap, thoughtless, perfunctory gift that nobody ever asks for. Unreturnable because all you get back is another box of chocolates. So you're stuck with this undefinable whipped mint crap that you mindlessly wolf down when there's nothing else left to eat. Sure, once in a while there's a peanut butter cup or an English toffee. But they're gone too fast and the taste is... fleeting. So, you end up with nothing but broken bits filled with hardened jelly and teeth-shattering nuts. And if you're desperate enough to eat those, all you got left is an empty box filled with useless brown paper wrappers.

Perfect! I will do that now!

Ahhhhhh, there are quite a few years it might be! Do you think I should use COTWs method of treating silver?

I'd like to see an overlay of all dates. Might be a good project for the spring break.

I think I can see a 5 in the date, which also appears to be quite large.

The 1852-O quarter has a large date. I think this could be it.

I rubbed it on a piece of paper and a 5 showed up!

Now I will try to find the 2!

Nice! Can you post pics?

Does rubbing the coin on paper damage it? I've tried using a King George III halfpenny as a pocket piece, and the date (1807) showed up faintly!

Also, I can usually tell the date from the shape of the 5.

Well, it will make the coin shiny.

I learned it from a dealer with Flying Eagle cents.

One minute you have a no date flying eagle, the next you have a bold 1858.

I am starting to see the last digit. It looks like a 2 or a 3. But it can't be a 3 because it doesn't have rays.

Well, tell us if it is a 2.

That's one of the toughest dates in the series besides the CCs, and that's saying a lot in a series where half the coins are key dates - Mintage 96000 with about 400 surviving examples. (PCGS Coinfacts)

In FR-02 there is an auction result that sold for $179. I think yours might be worth getting slabbed if it is a 52-O.

And hey, maybe the FE cents trick could be the secret to dateless SLQs.

I am pretty sure it is a 2. I am about to watch a movie with family. So will probably take pictures afterwards or tomorrow morning.
