These all looked like they have cleaned to me.

1. Do they look real or fake?
2. Do they look like they have been cleaned?
3. Do you think they have any value over face?

Also, the S on the Walking Liberty doesn't look right. So I would like your thoughts.

Thank you,

FOMC

1. They "look" real to me based on ONLY WHAT I CAN CURRENTLY SEE IN THESE PICTURES ! If in-hand, I might have a different opinion!

2. They do not look cleaned .... yet!

3. If real they are worth we'll over face value!

The seller is asking $100 each for these coins. Do you think that's fair?

The quarters are IF they are genuine!

How well do you know the Seller? Does the Seller have any history? Is there a return privilege?

The SLQ and WLH are counterfeit, lettering in the "in god we trust" for the half is my reasoning, and the date for the Standing quarter is my reasoning. The barber I'm not sure on, however I'm leaning towards fake based on the other coins. I would avoid this seller completely, as all the other coins that were posted are also counterfeit. You should let the guy know as well.

I think the quarters are real, but, as the others have said, given the seller has only had fakes so far I'd look elsewhere.

If there is no return privilege then I think you know you are treading in dangerous waters.

In case it helps anyone else later, the Barber quarter is definitely fake. It has Obverse Type I and Reverse Type II. All coins after 1900 had Obverse II and Reverse III. Counterfeiters are lazy.

Thank you everyone for your responses. Just so everyone knows, I walked away and no money was spent. I've learned a lot from these coins and everyone that has responded!

The hunt continues!
