I've had this one lying around for quite a while, figured I'd bust it out and examine it.

OH, how pretty! If it were mine, I think I would have kept it in the 'antique' holder for conversation. But I understand your wanting it out for a bit. Obviously a near perfect cartwheel luster. A couple of tiny pings on the obverse rim at five o'clock and that pesky little mark in the field that Washington is staring at are the only distractions I see, and frankly they wouldn't bother me if I were looking to buy this coin as MS65 for $25.

Hmm, maybe it's a matte proof .
Nice uncirculated Quarter, love the tail feather feathers . MS-65 .
You should put that 2x2 in a separate holding , it sure is an antique .

Can't really evaluate surfaces on angled shots like these.

An antique needs to be at least 100 years old.

When was the last time you saw corrosion on a silver coin ?
