I find that this coin type is hard to grade. Photograde seems inconsistent. These aren't my pics. This coin comes in a lot I bid on.

This is a quarter. It shows little wear but it looks abraided in the obverse in the center. Reverse looks cleaned. AU details damaged, cleaned.

The pictured SL QUARTER you are bidding on appears to be in very fine condition but may have environmental problems that might prevent a straight grade. I see some pitting and some carbon spotting.

I did do an auto color adjustment in Infranview, which made the reverse look darker. I agree about the abrasion.

Almost looks like someone took a dremel and started flattening Liberty's right leg. Maybe also tooled?

Don't like the look of this one. Obverse surfaces have a weird granular texture. Details are mushy. The 9s in the date don't match and some letters look strange, like the A in QUARTER.

It likely wouldn't be super profitable to counterfeit circulated 1929-S quarters but this one doesn't look right. What does it weigh?

I would say VF-20 at best. Surprised at your grade, N/S.

I wouldn't straight grade this coin. The stars in the obverse pediment are struck up, which don't suggest a heavily worn, circulated coin. Same with all the obverse lettering. Reverse lettering and feathers suggest the same.

Granulation looks more like a picture quality issue than a surfaces issue. Weak strike, noticeable in the right leg flatness and shield. Good amount of luster still apparent. I'll say XF45-AU50 likely details. Better pics needed.

EF45-AU50? C'mon. The sash isn't even complete.

You have to look at the overall coin, not just one part. The middle of the obverse with liberty does not look like the rest of the coin.

Apparent pitting hit my eye when I first saw it. Interesting die crack from the branches shaft through IN. Don't like the mark on her left thigh, wondering if the funky lighting is positioned to hide it?

Hey...its a full date SLQ..I like it !

Struck with an out of focus REV .

How much squash could a Sasquatch squash if a Sasquatch would squash squash?

Certainly not an original obverse . It's a details coin so you might not want to bid on if it's still open .

In Memory of Butch L.
and Jim U. rest in peace .

At first glance, VF35. But it has small amounts of remaining luster.

I'll go with XF40 weak strike.

It appears genuine but something is fishy. But I'd gladly throw this in my tube of dated Standing quarters!

Definitely some central weakness, but the other devices look strong. Possibly a greased die or strike weakness? I'd say XF details, abrasions.
