Possible 1901 S Barber quarter

#1 Unread post by coinlector » Fri Mar 20, 2015 2:40 pm

Another view of the die crack on the obv. seems to start just under the left tip of breast going through the breast to the first star, continuing to the second star and possibly further.

Have to see the mint mark, image of entire coin, front and back and without all the glare. Also how did you come about this coin?

I understand the 1901 S can be identified by the date as well. The rev. has a faint "S" in the normal spot and very difficult to see without magnification.

It's not an authentic 1901-S, you have to see the mint mark normally and it will not be so weak that you need magnification to see it. Sorry but this is 1901 plain from Philadelphia.
