I can not figure it out as it appears to be a NSF.?
Should be easy looking at the horns?
thanks for helping.

The I in DEI seems to be flared which makes it a nsf. I'm not an expert and hopefully one shows up.

Wire rims = NSF Large Date
Wide rims = SF Small Date
"Dipping" is not considered cleaning...

@DBM does that apply to all 1953 coins or just the .25 ?

Though other denominations changed from narrow rim NSF to wide rim SF, only on the the 25 cents is the difference so readily apparent. The others require some familiarity with the series to identify by rim only and thus other markers are used.

Thank you guys,
I normally took the horns as markers. Perhaps by convenience as these young dates are outside my criteria.
thank you. It is amazing how knowledgeable some of you are about the whole spectrum of numismatics
thank you. for helping out.

The dollar is readily identified by rims as well . Wide flat rims for the SF Dollar
Narrow Rims NSF .
