That's a swell 1916 SLQ! I got this one in the mail today, for once I didn't have this die marriage already, it's an O-115, R3 graded VF-35 by PCGS. Still has some nice luster remaining in the protected areas and some really neat die cracks on the reverse, including one through "MERICA" that leaves a lump protruding from the R.

Hi,

So I'm more of a comic collector and an active CGC member, but I received a cool coin from my father-in-law and wanted to share.  It's not often I get to wander over here, so here goes nothing:

Question though ~ My father-in-law has probably owned this for 20+ years, so has a lot changed in that time.  I assume a MS64 should be the same regardless of when it was graded, but is there anything I need to think about in more recent times?  Not sure my photos do it justice, but it seems like a nice strike to me (though I admit that I don't quite know what to look for :) ).  I could try some other picture angles/lighting if it would help.

Also, any idea what the stickers mean on the back?

Anyway, thanks for letting me join in the fun over here.  Glad I finally have a reason to venture over!

That's great looking Buff in a old NGC fatty.  The stickers on the back were probably put on by the person who sold the coin to father-in-law.  Personal preference I would remove them and get the old glue off of it.

Well here's one that will impress you, I think it's an 1818, but I can't be positive, but for a sawbuck I can't complain! Found it at the local coin club meeting tonight.

Definitely 18..  I zoomed in as far as I could, but could not see anything.   Very interesting.

Well, having looked at it in hand, I can see 181, so it's either 1815, 1818 or 1819, so to be safe I just assume it's the most common which is an 1818.  Not sure if there are any Bust quarter folks that might offer any clues based on the reverse which has a bit more detail than the obverse.
