This One is worn but it seems to be nicely evenly Worn.
Very curious on what grade this one would get.
I sure appreciate you guys that do answer can I hope I'm not being too annoying by posting all these.

This looks like a nice G-6. The rim isn't fully complete on the reverse, but I don't think that's enough to go lower

And don't worry, we get some sort of sick satisfaction out of looking at coins, as long as the pictures are as good as these, we're happy to help grade them

Also for future reference these are commonly referred to as " Barber quarters" and less commonly "Liberty Head Quarters".

" Sick satisfaction" ha, love it.
What exactly does details cleaned mean?
It's possible that my great grandmother could have cleaned these long ago they have been in my storage unit for 13 years inside of a secret drawer in her secretary, she passed away In 1996 so if any of these were cleaned it's been that long at least but I couldn't say for sure what she has done to them as for me I have done nothing to them I was told not to right away. I wish I did know more about them and about where others might be hidden. She was awfully good at hiding things because we also thought she was 98 when she died but she was a 103. A true Patriot she was name's Christine Colombo ( Colombo her middle name after Christopher Columbus) she taught at the university, wrote a book about Horace Greeley , and was an artist, aside from coin collecting and stamp collecting. Next I'll need help either too. Maybe somebody can steer me in the right direction for a site that is good at stamps actually their 1st issue covers a lot of them so they have these beautiful envelopes in these big stamps in their 3rd for everything 1st flight all the ships and just ,all the Old cars, all the President's. Anyway I digress this is not staying on topic sorry.

Yes we are all coin addicts . Some of us eat a bowl of Wheaties (cents) for breakfast .
Your Barber quarter grades about G-06 she's showing a lot of wear but not too shabby .
Don't take life too seriously and remember it is just a passing fad ......

G-6. Hairlines are from circulation, not cleaned.

A good website about stamps is https://www.stampcommunity.org . The owner of both the Stamp Community and Coin Community is the same (Bobby).

Definitely NOT cleaned. You could never achieve this circulation cameo from a previously cleaned coin.

Although this is not a high value coin, it is a wonderful addition to a nice collection.

Never worry about putting coins up the way you are doing it. Nice photos with exact questions make us into happy puppies receiving a crunchy treat

When a coin is worn so smooth like the OP coin, it often develops hairlines like this. This does NOT mean the coin has been cleaned. Usually hairlines like this are caused by heavy circulation. If the coin had light colored surfaces along with hairlines, it would grade "cleaned." However, as this coin exhibits original crusty surfaces, we can tell the hairlines are caused by circulation.

Your answer does not explain how hairline scratches develop from circulation. This coin looks clearly wirebrushed.

Notice how the hairlines are pretty much only visible on the devices and the area where the rim was compromised. This makes me think theyre from the coin being slid across a sighty abrasive surface like a wooden table, maybe even a vending machine or coin counter. In any case I dont thing id consider it to be enough damage to warrant a details grade, I may be wrong though.

It looks like an average heavily circulated Barber coin to me, NOT wirebrushed. If my explanation is not adequate, I recommend you ask our grading experts about this - Coinfrog, Moxking, IndianGoldEagle, or our resident Barber expert - two_tonevf35.

G-06 straight with nice circulation cameo. No indication of cleaning at all. Flash is exaggerating stray surface marks.
