Hello, newbie here. I was just looking for guidance on this coin. I was told it was 1854-O huge O variety, and thats what it was on the flip. Can anyone let me know please.

It does look like it may be that variety based on the thickness of the mint mark. Here's some info from PCGS CoinFacts:

The 1854-O Huge O Quarter Dollar is a very unusual variety, because the mintmark is large, misshapen, and unlike the O mintmark on any other coin from this year or from any other. For this reason, experts believe the mintmark was either re-worked or added by hand to a die that the Philadelphia Mint shipped to New Orleans minus a mintmark (the Philadelphia Mint supplied all the dies to the branch mints, and added the mintmarks before shipping out the dies). Walter Breen claimed to have discovered the 1854-O Huge O Quarter Dollar in 1954, exactly one hundred years after its issuance.
According to the PCGS Population Report, the certified population of the 1854-O Huge O is roughly half that of the regular 1854-O Quarter Dollar, making it scarce but not rare.

Certainly has the look.
I'd like to see full coin images of both sides.

Looks like it might grade FR-02 but we need the pics to give a better opinion.
Describe it as if there were no picture.

To tell you truth, the coin is terrible. The date is barely there, need some patience, a good eye and a loupe just for that. But considering even in poor condition, the coin might be worth a bit of money, is it worth going to get stabbed?

Shouldn't this be moved to the Classic section?

The OP coin is not a 54 O Huge O.

OP coin


1854 Huge O, compare the top left quadrant of the mintmark.
