Wasn't sure if giving individual S quarters San Fransisco themed sticker labels would make them more attractive as set pieces, but I produced a small batch and might put them on eBay to see if there's any interest. Would you pay a small premium for these over just raw S quarters?

Full disclosure. I'm not a quarter collector but they look very attractive.

Those should definitely fetch some premium

Very good idea, Don't let the coin shows know what you are up to..

They sell on ebay for between $1.50 and $1.80 each raw. Not sure how much more additional you could make off them with a sticker on a 2x2 but nothing tried is nothing gained.

Good luck.

I don't collect Quarters so it does nothing for me.

Even if it does not bring a premium over other raw S quarters, it will likely get yours to sell faster than other identical quarters that are listed online. Maybe you could get a little more too though, test the waters and give it a shot.

They look good and I would try a few if I were you. Just make sure your extra costs for the upgraded presentation are covered in the realized sale prices as well as compensation for your time and effort.

Adds an interesting edge. Maybe try printing a run using a glossy paper?

I must admit, even though I have no interest in buying quarters, this kinda makes me wanna buy one of those.

Would they all be the Golden Gate Bridge? Maybe mix it up with other interesting Bay Area landmarks?

Like chafemasterj and justcarl I'm not a quarter collector. However, I like displayed coins. I would probably buy it if it had more of a back ground theme for that particular quarter. I am guessing that is the Golden Gate Bridge?

Here is the US Mints display. It is much bigger that what you are making. but you can see the theme.

I think you should turn the coin around and have the reverse seen, not Washington's head.

I think this is the best advice so far.
Love the idea though. Personally, I put my coins in albums so I would not have an interest in paying more for it, since I would take it out anyway. But I love the idea and think it will go over well.
