1897 S Barber Quarter - Your Opinions and Thoughts Please
I came across this 1897 S Barber Quarter not too long ago. I decided to look further into possibly picking it up since it has the 'center' mint-mark for the 'S.' Apparently about 1/15 1897 S Barber Quarters will have the mint-mark designated in the center between the 'R' and the 'D' in 'QUARTER DOLLAR.' Anyways, I would really appreciate other members input on the coin, I have posted two pictures of it below. There appears to be some rim damage below in the photo of the Obverse. Also, is it just me or does anyone else get the impression that this coin might be a counterfeit? I grade it has an nice XF-45.
As always, I really value your thoughts and opinions when I ask a question about coins on this site, so thank you very much.
