New Purchase - 1853 Rays and Arrows Quarter with Major Reverse Die Cracking
I picked up this quarter for my slowly advancing type set. It was a very spontaneous purchase, I discovered it was for sale as an eBay auction about a day before the auction closed. She's only a VF35, but I thought the die cracking going around at least half the reverse in a pretty symmetric way was pretty dang cool! I probably overpaid a little bit, but at $110.23 (outbidded an 'underbidder' at $110), it's not a huge risk and I don't plan on re-selling it. What do you think? Cool coin but overpaid? Are die cracks like this common on this series?
Attached photos are the seller's photos, the coin is in the mail on the way to me.
