Just picked up what I believe to be an inverted "S" Washington quarter. According to Wexler's Die Varieties, the 1945 "Trumpet Tail S" variety is known to have an inverted MM, and this certainly fits the bill.
Does anybody have any additional information on something like this?
Thanks for your time

I think you might have it. Nice find! It is also listed with a DDR!

Looks like an inverted mintmark.

Tough call on this one being a DDR? You might retake images that match the examples on Variety Vista to see if a Side by side will help use identify it, or not?

Thanks everyone!
Coop- This zoom is the best I can do for now, until I pick up a microscope. I sure don't see any doubling! But it doesn't look like it would be too obvious anyway according to Variety Vista..
Wexler stated there should be some on the string to the left of the MM as well.

I have a question: Would something like this be worth getting graded, I guess getting 'put on the record'?
I haven't started a membership with any grading companies yet but I'd like to start.
Thanks again

I do not think the cost would be justifiable, although it is a decent circulated example of the variety. The "inverted S" dates and the various RPM's are a great joy to cherrypick from junk silver boxes at shows.

Thanks for your comment, paralyze. I suppose it would only be worth it if it were in mint condition.. Still trying to figure out what's worthy or not!
I appreciate your insight.

Only high grade BU coins that have a variety on it would be worth grading because of the fees charged. ($200 range) If someone was selling me a coin, pay nothing extra for a slabbed coin.

It's $200 ?!? I thought it was more like the $40-$60 range... What about BU coins of a particular year where the highest recorded grade is relatively low, and you think you have the first in it's population? According to the auction prices, those would also be well worth it, but for $200?
Kind of crushes my spirits a bit..

Oh, nevermind.. I think you were referring to a pre-1964 mint error coin that would have that kind of grading price tag, correct?
Yes, then definitely not worth it in this instance!

I was wondering about what is considered as a 'rarity' by PCGS, however...
If I submitted two 1969 nickels, one with full steps and one without FS, would the one with FS be considered a 'rarity', bringing with it a higher grading price, despite this coin having a large mintage number?

Just the same, if the 1969 nickel without FS was graded an MS69, would the price tag for grading it increase dramatically because of the high grade, despite how common a 1969 nickel is?

Sorry about all the questions.. but I really want to know what to expect. The anticipation that comes from getting your own personal collection graded by professionals seems way too exciting!
Thanks again for your time.
