Bought this quarter for $11.00 a few days ago. I think it grades G-VG. Does anyone have a grade estimate or value estimate?

First,

I think it just makes VG-08. IMHO, the obverse pulls it over the line.

Incomplete rims on both sides nets a G-6 for me.

@Coinfrog, Yep. I hear you, though. These are popping up as VG-08 if the obverse is solid. It's not the VG we remember, but it's where they seem to be grading. Just for kicks, I looked at the PCGS VG-08 Photograde example for the recessed date era, and it's almost a clone.

That's a large part of why I put them in flips with "G-VG" as the grade.

I guess I'm just too old school. Never in my (now ended) coin collecting lifetime would this have been considered even close to VG. Sigh.

@Coinfrog, You are far too young to be tired, much less retired. I'm old. Just ask my teenage grandkids, who wonder whether we had covered dinosaur parking when I went to school, or had to leave them parked on the street.

I cut my teeth on grading with Brown & Dunn, I know many of the young'uns abandoned B&D for Ruddy's Photograde, but I stuck with the scholarship behind B&D. It's still the best reasoned approach to grading. No doubt at all, this coin would be a straight G by B&D or even Ruddy. But the PCGS examples and what I am seeing from NGC and ANACS makes this VG-08 today. Yes, it is grade inflation. No, there isn't anything that can be done to go back to the old days.

There is an irony here. Recessed date SLQs will always have sharper obverses than comparable pedestal date SLQs. That's partly a function of the design change, partly a function of better availability of dies (reducing die wear), and partly a function of better coining presses. The obverse bias means the recessed date quarters with the same wear as pedestal date quarters will receive slightly higher grades in the G-F range. T'ain't fair, but neither is a 20-year-old baseball player being a highly paid DH while batting .226. That, however, is a different rant for a different day.
