Buyers Beware #3 Fake 23-S SLQ

7 posts in this topic

Recently listed on eBay. A very nice 1923-S Standing Liberty Quarter. Raw with lots of detail, nice luster, and multiple bids. Only one problem I can find. It appears to be an altered date. The final digit in the date is not consistent with genuine examples. Genuine 1923-S`s have a flat top numeral 3 in the date not a curved numeral 3,(which is to say that the top of the numeral resembles the top half of a letter Z with the lower portion being curved like a backward letter C.) It is my opinion that this coin has been alter from a 1928-S SLQ. I would advise steering clear of this one folks. But by all means arrive at your own conclusions. I just hate to see good money thrown away, when a nice genuine piece could be had instead. Making both the seller and the BUYER happy.

This has been another watchdog alert, helping to keep the fun and integrity in the hobby. sumo.gif

Dude, you're doing your homework and research. Very educational for us viewers.

As I just mentioned on the merc thread, however, a picture would be a good tool to us all.


Thanks for your input, reid!
