1854 huge O possibly dangling from my grampas key chain I don't know why he would do that, with the added hole in it if it had any value I'm curious now if it to possible fake?

It was the 1854-O Quarter, not the Half Dollar, with the Huge O MM. So no, this is not the Huge O.

It definitely has value even with the hole, as it is 90% silver. A small numismatic premium for it on top of the silver value.

Somehow, I just knew the "Huge O" would be a hole. I wasn't entirely wrong and I still learned something. Double points!

Working on: Franklin halves (now complete!), Peace dollars (three to go), US type (Bust era), and just started Chinese pandas.

Funny, I thought someone would think I meant the hole too!
I learned as well. I'm only a couple weeks into this coin collecting hobby. These are passed down from gramps.
He actually was really good about marking all of his coins and had them in special cases and books and all clearly marked on who was inheritin what, so it was never a problem not knowing what coins were which and how much they were worth.
But now I've found so many loose ones in crazy hiding places, I'm having to now learn. I'm sure he is smiling down watching me wracking my brain over it, and finding it to be a pleasurable pastime. ")

Here's photos from PCGS CoinFacts of the 1854-O Seated Liberty quarter with the Huge O mintmark:



It only was on the quarter, not the half dollar or any other denomination.


Feel free to post pics of the coins you inherited on the CCF if you have any questions about them.
