I was browsing eBay last week and saw a type set being auctioned. The pictures were blurry and terrible. For reasons I can't fully explain, my instincts told me there was more than meets the eye, and I put in a bid.

The coins arrived yesterday, and it's safe to say my instinct was correct. The set had clearly been assembled by a collector with a good eye for quality coins. One coin, however, was head and shoulders above and beyond the rest. What do you think of this one?

WOW! What was your bid...

Easily MS. I would like to see closer pictures but I would say MS 62+ possibilities. $3,000.00 book value. Looks like a bit of a weak strike around the stash area. If the close ups show detail in that area, I would say MS64+ $7,000.00 book value.

If it is the one I think it might be... under $400

NSS, you are likely correct, I bought the set for $349 US. Along with the 1904, there are two high grade George V quarters. The 1904 is clearly the best of the lot, but I've never seen cartwheel lustre like this on quarters this old.

Here's the eBay listing: https://www.ebay.ca/itm/263716270573

I may be wrong, but I'm guessing nss-55 saw the same listing but passed on it because of the blurry photos.

Oh I see, that's how much you paid. I thought he was saying that's how much its worth because its a different type of 1904 quarter.
