Your coin is high relief.
No low relief 1951 25cents were struck for circulation.
You won't find one.
"Dipping" is not considered cleaning...

Another high relief.
Why won't you believe what I said previously?
None were issued for circulation.

Welcome Greyman!

The markers you are looking for is where the A's in Gratia point. To the denticles (high relief), between the denticles (low relief). Both of your coins point to the denticles.

It is very unlikely you will find one in circulation, as they were made for mint sets, which typically do not make it into circulation, though it does happen. Please don't let previous responses dissuade you from asking questions, we are all here to learn.

I've always wondered about this.
Does the same go for 1952 PL quarters? Are all low relief's from PL sets?

Thanks to the ones who nicely replied. I am willing to learn. Keep looking at them but to all those with experience, eyes thank you. To the others with no patience. I had trouble loading and cropping the pictures at the same time. (could not find them on my computer). Learn by doing.

P.S. I'll be back

There have been exactly as many low relief 1951s found in circulation as 1936 dot cents.

For 1952 there are both high relief and low relief circulation strikes.
1952 PL quarters are all low relief.
There were no "sets" of PL coins until 1953, beginning in 1949 only certain denominations were struck as PL, for example no 5cent PL coins were struck until 1953, thus all "sets" from 1949 'til '52 were a random mixture of PL and circulation coins. In 1953 there were both mixed sets and full PL sets, it wasn't until 1954 that homogenous PL sets became the norm.

PCGS has a couple Pl 1951 LR's in Au. Which are probably just shelf wear, not circulation, but given the mixed nature of the sets, not impossible to believe a few ended up in circulation, I have put more than a few PL's into circulation. Unlike the 1936, which was limited to a few specimens for a select person.

Here is a 1951 PL 5 cent, NGC may have gotten it wrong, I don't think it was a specimen, but to this day the only coin I really regret selling. Heritage pictures don't do it justice, it was so nice in hand. Mistakes of a new collector...

I had a PCGS 1952 5c PL-64 that I cracked and sent to ICCS and it came back as MS-66
