So, I just received a lot of standing liberty junk silver today at about $3 a coin. 80 total. Nothing too exciting, but several interesting finds...I got 8 dateless(or nearly so) type 1s, a couple of them were S mints. I always hope for a 1916, but based on the diagnostics I was looking at, I don't think any of them fit that description. However, I did receive this.



I believe this is a 1920-D. It has some damage, but still a semi-key in identifiable condition. What would it grade? G/VG details? The RedBook says $50 in G-4.

Also, I found what I believe to be a contemporary counterfeit. It weighs at 5.8 grams. Most of the details and look of the coin appear pretty good, until you look at the area where you would expect to find the date. It looks more like liberty is "walking on water", and the bottom 2 stars don't exist. It's totally blank where the date should be. It's also just a bit on the thin side. Cost me 3 bucks, but it is interesting.

Ok, I looked at the "near dateless" ones a little closer, and this one got my heart pumping a little bit. Is it what I think it is?

After comparing to other AG-3 to G-6 certified 1921 Standing quarters on Heritage, I am about 95% sure that the coin picture above is a 1921 dated quarter! The placement is correct, the thickness is correct, and the overall "look" of the "1" is the same.

Sheesh! Great finds. I believe it is a 1921 too... should grade around VG. The 1920-D is a little better.

Wow, amazing finds. The 1921 is about G-4, perhaps G-6, depending on the reverse. The 20-D is G-6 details. TPG's knock these down a lot for the weakness in the date, even for the pre-25 issues. Those are some crazy finds, especially since you only paid 12x face.

did you buy these from a dealer, if so then I would have gone back the next day and bought all he has hopping for another great find. that is definitely a 1921 and I believe that it would grade G-6

well I bought mine for $120 in VG from a dealer who I have known for a while so he sold it to me for what he paid but I would say the one pictured above would sell for $100-$125 some where around there. I guess I am going to have to start looking at ebay for lots like that, looking at the reverse I still think it in G

You can make out the 1 in the date, and as no other date in the series has a 1 as the last digit, it is a 1921. Look at some 1921 SLQ's and most of them have only the 1 showing. Anyways, nice coin. It is a nice G-6, perhaps G-4.

Here is a comparison with an ICG AG-3 1921 graded quarter : reference http://cgi.ebay.com/1921-Silver-Sta...em19b97967ff

I circled the "1" in red. As you can see, the distinguishment of the date on both of these coins are almost identical. Though I think the coin is technically a G-6, it would probably only get an AG-3 or G-4 grade from a TPG due to the date weakness.
