    Now do your dance, Joey. I believe the 1873 might be a closed 3. JMO

    Lol.
    Yeah, I hope you are wrong and it ends up being the REAL BIG BABY?
    :D
    What does this diagnosis mean?
    Just the proof or both, the Closed 3 and Proof?

    Just for proofs. The diagnostic for the proof coin is on the shield border not interior as your arrows identify.

    I don't think the numbers have been flattened by wear to create the closed look, but possibility. Good luck. Hopefully, someone with credentials will post.

    fwiw, not a closed 3 imo

    not only because of the distance but how small the top knob is on the 3.

    Well, Joey. Sorry if I got your hopes up for naught. Lance may be right. I did an overlay and it is still a possibility but I will defer to those more capable than I.

    I referred the subject to my YouTube friends. They have a good sense of many varieties. It most probably will be on the Monday Q and A panel, @ the info@livecoinqa.com stream
    7:30pm central.
    Thanks guys
    Hopefully, it will be discussed and exhibited on stream? Hope to see ya guys there, too?

    Looks like an S mint mark to me, but am not sure if that is a known location on an 1873.

    @JoeyCoins .... Good luck... That 1873 certainly has been beat around a bit... Let us know what the final determination is.... Cheers, RickO

    Open 3.

    rheddenrhedden Posts: 6,619 ✭✭✭✭✭

    There is no need to debate Open vs. Closed 3 because there is part of an arrow showing to the right of the date. It's an 1873 Arrows quarter. The Closed 3 variety that is rare has a No Arrows obverse.

    It is worth discussing whether it might be 1873-cc. Either way, it's nice to find a Seated 25c in a junk box for sure, and congrats!

    I think you just hit the nail on the head?
    Yes, two things. First, like you mentioned, the "Closed 3" variety, does NOT have Arrows. Mine does! Secondly, even, in the other case, where it can be the CC. The 1873CC, also doesn't have the Arrows. Once again, mine does.
    So, in conclusion.
    My find, I admit, is just a very low, low grade of the 1873 Seated Quarter.
    I thank you, ALL!

    There is definitely an 1873-cc Arrows quarter. The 1873-cc No Arrows is super-rare, and there are five known. :)

    Going back soon!
    To do some more bin hunting.
    This same coin shop, is where I also found
    a 1891CC Morgan, w/ rim ding and a beautiful 1920s Mercury Dime. In which, I sent in to PCGS. Sadly, it came back cleaned. Both in the junk bins.
    I paid $5 for the Merc
    Then, $25, for the CC.
