Hi. While sorting my coin collection, which I recently inherited, I came across this 1895 Barber quarter. I am no expert so I don't have the knowledge to grade it. However, it does have some sort of damage or defect to the back (middle of the eagle). I'm curious to know how this might have happened. The front shows some type of markings that might Have been caused by damage to the back? Thank you for your help! Bill

Appears to be solder - probably used once as a tie-tack or stick-pin.

Pretty much worth silver melt now unless it has some sort of sentimental value.
At least it wasn't a 1901-S.
Currently interested in buying 1957 and earlier Russian and Soviet coins. Let me know if you have any and we can hook up a deal!

Have to disagree , solder wouldn't leave that that kind of mark on obverse . Some other kind of damage in my opinion .

Have you ever watched someone with no experience try soldering?

They probably had to use silver-solder,instead of lead-solder,which has a higher melting point.You would need a torch because a soldering gun wouldn't work.
