Please grade this 1892 barber quarter

PppPpp Posts: 467 ✭✭✭✭

In my travels I never come across and I don’t look for, good quality barber coins. Then I came across this 1892 Barber quarter and I really liked the way it looked however, my gut tells me it might have been polished but I took a chance and bought it. The shop said it was an ms63.

What grade would you give this coin.

Thank you in advance.

    Obverse fields look polished to me. UNC Details.

    It appears to have UNC details, but the photos would need to be closer up to evaluate the surfaces.

    If it's real, I'll go 58 cleaned.

    If you bought it at MS-63 prices I'd return it quickly!

    Thank you for your confirmation of my gut. Lighting wasn’t good at the shop and it’s one of those cases where I wanted it to be what it was marked. It’s when I got home and looked at it again my gut said oops.
    I am sure the shop will take it back however, it is my fault and part of me says eat it as another in the long line of learning experiences.

    It was dipped, not polished. They don't look like that that old. If we could have better light it, that would help. It looks like a piece of cardboard in these. If there's luster, it's hidden in these.

    There is no reason that you have to bite the bullet, just return the coin

    It's a dipped out AU coin ...from my perspective. MS-63 would be too optimistic. Can't get a fix on the luster, if there is any?

    Granted, this one is a higher grade, but even an MS-63 Barber should have nice bright luster that cartwheels around the peripheries.
