G-06+ I believe only the 1934 had a light motto variety .

VG works for me. You must have a boatload of coins. I couldn't imagine have that in my collection and not know it. Nice fine! !

Can we see the 1913-S in those Barber quarters?

Even with the flatness to the devices high points and weakness in the Motto, still full separation from the rim. I'd say VG08/10, I bet this looks better in hand.

The early Washington quarters have several issues. Consequently, it's REALLY important to have clear images of both sides for me to make a well-educated guess. At this point, I don't have enough info (i.e.: a clear image of the coin) to throw a valid grade guestimate out there.

From Ken Bressett's ANA Grading Standards (6th Edition):

"The obverse motto is always weak on coins of 1932 and early issues of 1934.

The obverse rim is especially thick on coins of 1932 through 1935, protecting the obverse and often resulting in split grades (e.g., VG/AG) on well-worn examples."

I'd say VG-08. Wish I could just happen to find one of those in my junk silver!

Tough one.

The obverse rim protected the peripheral elements fairly well, and only the "9" of the date and the "T" of LIBERTY are merging with the rim. The motto is very weak. The wear on the hair seems a bit heavy for a high VG. I could see the obverse anywhere from G-06 to VG-10. The reverse rim also protected the peripheral elements, but the wear on the central devices is closer to G-06 than VG-08.

Bottom line, it's a classic G/VG range coin. I could see a legitimate argument for anything from G-06 to VG-10, but think VG-10 might be just a little bit too high for a TPG or a bourse floor buyer.

There is only about a $5 spread from G-06 to VG-08, so either grade should work for valuation.

It's a really nice find in a random silver batch!

I say it is an altered coin - added mintmark. That is not the correct style for 1932-D quarters.
Here is an image of a 32-D quarter mintmark
