This coin is very common as far as I know, but what makes it interesting is not that there is the beginning of a cud on the obverse, but that the dies are in 180 degree rotation upon both clash and strike. The clashed portrait of Liberty's head can be seen on the reverse in 180 rotation.

The rotation really makes that clash interesting.

Now that's a die clash I like! Most clashes don't impress me that much because they ARE common, and most of them are rather mild. But a clash that shows the dies were rotated 180 degrees from normal when they clashed is very unusual.

This coin has a few things going for it- the strength of the clash is above average and it is rotated 180 as noted. If you look at the nose and chin, it appears to have a double clash. And of course, there is the massive rim cud on the obverse

Waihaha, I don't know what that is supposed to be, but it isn't a real U.S. coin.

Very interesting piece though, I would love to have it. It is obviously intended as a spoof of a Barber quarter.

Thanks for sharing Waihaha !

One more note on that 1914 Barber quarter: I have already said that I really like it, but I cannot see the rims well enough to tell if it is solid bronze or not.

It may have a core of .999 milk chocolate layered in high grade bronze. I love those too.

為什麼它不是一個真正的美國硬幣?從那裡看的出來,這硬幣在我家裡至少有20幾年了以下也是我父親留下的

Excellent photos of pocket change, and possibly scarce coins in Taiwan.

In the USA, that 1914 quarter is the rarest of the bunch. I want to find one of those somewhere!

Your Kennedy halves are 40% silver
I like the 1914 quarter replica. It shows a lot of handwork done--to a die perhaps?
I also see they reversed the D in IN GOD WE TRUST. Cool!

that is the funniest looking thing I have ever seen. They didn't even care to make it look real, they put the D in GOD backwards and gave it a cartoon like appearance. The Reverse has the E in UNITED left off like the wing is covering it. Kind of looks like it came out of a toy or board game

Here's a translation (done by Google)

It looks coin is a fake ! But why 20 years ago, someone would fake such small coins? To identify whether the United States have a special unit could help identify more costly and generous number of dollars.


I'm not sure why that " Barber quarter" would be made...any guesses? Made from brass, an identical size would be underweight by about 13%. Perhaps it was made as a curio for tourists? I realize it's not a real coin, but I like the amount of handwork shown and the errors.

It isn't really a 1914 quarter lafaa, it is that gold colored thing that 'very' crudely resembles the main attributes of a Barber quarter of 1914.

waihaha1973....Can you please adjust the 'language' on your 'google' page so we can read what you are saying?
