I'm new, with lots of questions

#1 Unread post by Obsessed » Wed Feb 11, 2015 3:51 pm

Hello,

A little background: My father passed December 2013. My Mother wanted me to go through his coin collection because she needed money for burial, medical bills, etc. My Daddy had already planned to cash in some, so I didn't feel bad about cashing in some silver. That's all for background.

I have researched and bookmarked so many coin sites, bought magnifiers, scales, supplies. It is such a big job. I spend quite a bit of time looking and researching coins. So, I really need some help from you experts! I'm going to be here a lot and have a lot of questions. I'll do one at a time.

1st One:

Looking at Wexler's Coins, transitional designs, Washington Quarter, type A,B,C - how can I have a 1957 Type B that is not a proof? Do proofs get circulated?

I'll try to take a picture that's helpful, but I don't have sophisticated equipment.

Thanks for any help and I'll be back! :patriot:

The reverse was struck by a left over proof die with the type B eagle but was struck as a business strike.

Thanks for your answer.

Is this a common or "not unusual" thing to happen?

It adds some value depending on the grade.
