1776-1976 Washington Quarter Dollar

Looks like it in nice condition.! Do these command any premium? I found a couple in circulation.

 

Cherry Picker

 

I cannot find out anything about them in the Cherry Picker's Guide except some doubling on Liberty and the motto and date. Unfortunately I haven't found any of those. At best the premium would be for AU or better.

 

The coins are in well circulated condition. I have been hoarding them for many years and have a couple rolls full right now. I recently came across one that was in circulation and it is a gem. To the naked eye it is nearly perfect. With a 10x glass one can see a few tiny nicks or gouges on the obverse, and a few on the reverse. Wish my entire lot were like this.

 

Whenever I find a really nice circulated coin I can't help but think that some kid has gotten into grandad's collection and was out whooping it up.

Gee whiz and I thought you were a bunch of really nice people.

 

By the way, I did see the grandpa's collection thing happen.

I was in a very strange store a lot of years ago and two little guys, maybe about 10 and 11 years old, came in and wanted to purchase some odd object.

 

I had to say to the boys, "looks like you got into your grandpa's coin collection", and they looked really surprised that I guessed where they got the coins.

 

The store owner took one look at all the nickels the kids handed him and took all their beautiful nickels in exchange for some crazy kid stuff.

 

Oh, the store owner was not me... if it were I would have snagged those nickels and found out where the kids lived and made them return all the nickels to grandpa.
