1897-S Barber Quarter Dollar

Dos Mundos

In looking at the coin again it Probably is a Fine+. But what concerns me is the mintmark placement. I don't own this date/mm but all my other mintmark Barber quarters have the mintmark to the northeast of the last R in quarter , or directly in the center of the opening between that R and D in Dollar.

Maybe it's a characteristic of that date/mm I don't know.


Being that's a semi key date and kinda pricey, makes sure it's not a counterfeit. Send it to a grading service.


Anybody know more on this?

I noticed the mintmark placement also, but I looked at a few certified 1897-S coins and it is in the same location



Thanks Brett, I thought I was the only one who noticed! The die puncher must had a few cocktails for lunch, that's nowhere near center :ninja:
