    Nice strike - full stars. Light toning. Scarcest P mint Barber Quarter. Scratches in field and on face? I can't grade; but, I'll guess MS63.

    Pics aren’t great, but I’d vote Unc Details at best.

    Unc details, something looks very funky with it.

    the images are no true views but have their size and it looks like they were taken at one size and enlarged to jumbo sized which was then auto reduced by the forum software

    it all makes me wonder if another game is being played besides gtg

    i'll grade the pictures as slightly granular and dark.i wouldn't buy the coin from those pictures. i'm not going to gtg here either

    Due to the strong light source, the coin appears to have surface issues, but I believe this is not the case and the coin will straight grade as an ms64.

    I agree with the off base toning but also looks to be some contact/scratches across face and field spoiling the obverse a bit. The rims look good (which I often look at for contact, etc.) and there are some nice areas. I think we need some better pictures b/c otherwise looks to be Unc. details to me also...
