Thanks for sharing your recent purchase!

The coin has the appearance of one that has been harshly cleaned or mishandled. Is it in a "Details" holder?

On a side note, the Isabella Quarter is not a particularly rare coin. Though its mintage was just 10,000 back in 1893, the coin is readily available in today's market for those seeking an example.

Hmmm. How come every it says 24,124. Where is the link for 10,000. I'm not complaining though.
Oh yeah, Winner Winner Chicken Dinner ! You are correct . Was a bad investment ? I paid around $100 give or take .

COMMEMS may have meant $10,000 were authorized for production = 40,000 coins of which 15,809 were melted. Arriving at the 24,214 you reference. I pulled my stats from PCGS coinfacts.

As for a good deal. You paid in the range of an AU details coin of this type. Maybe a touch less than some.

Yep, a case of the mind going down one path while the fingers traveled a different road!

@scopru: Thanks for catching/correcting my mistake - much appreciated!

To me, that's a difficult question to answer. I personally never recommend to a fellow collector that they purchase a mishandled/Details coin because "coins don't heal" and a Details coin will always be seen as a problem coin. (I recognize that sometimes, a Details coin might be the only reasonably collectible example of a coin (financially speaking), but I am talking the rule here not the exception.)

I always suggest waiting, saving more and then purchasing a problem-free coin in the best grade you can. Details coins do not generally increase in market value to the same degree as problem-free coins, so their investment potential is muted.

Bottom line, however, if you are happy with the coin - it was a good purchase!

We all collect in our own way for our own reasons and within our means. You have a good addition to a collection with a very interesting history.

Very improperly cleaned.
To my eye, it appears to be an EF coin.

I am still envious. I don't have an Isabella Quarter in any condition.
