    Just got here
  1. No Star for You!!! I'm a little upset the quarter was not at least given a star. The obverse is PL. https://www.ngccoin.com/certlookup/4719164-002/65/
  2. Nice '64 deep cameo @numisport! Also, thanks for your insight into these '64 PL's @coinman1794. The '64-D you posted is outstanding. I hope to receive at least a MS63 grade on coin with star; should be close. I also submitted a '64-D Type C reverse that is BU, so, naturally I'm excited with this particular submission.
  3. My typical user name here is @PocketArt- been so long that I've been here I forgot I had two accounts when I posted last night. Use one for submissions to NGC, and other for chat boards- guess I exposed my alt, hehe. I tried to find if you could delete but couldn't locate that function. Anyway, yes Jason I agree with you- probably just star. The reverse just isn't quite there, as much as I'd hope it would be; but still nice. @numisport, actually there isn't any die polish marks as would be typical for most PL Washington quarters from say like the '40's. The various marks on obverse would be wear/chatter. I'm almost convinced that an obverse proof die may have been thrown into production for business strikes. Maybe not to far fetched as over a half billion were produced at the Philadelphia mint. Hard to determine with obverse- not like the reverse type "B" that has attributes associated with proof. Yet, you could be right as I don't know what methods had changed to polish dies, and if far less abrasive? IDK.
  4. I was very happy to purchase this Washington earlier this year at a B&M- sunk a whole $7 in purchase. At first; I thought this may have been a proof because the obverse was fully mirrored. The reverse is closer to a semi-pl. Beautiful coin IMO.
