Washington Quarter Variety

I have what appears to be a 1950 s Quarter that has a s/s variety. Is anyone familiar with this variety? The coin is in a PCGS holder but the s/s is not mentioned. I do not know how to post a link to the auction but the auction number was 803878695. Any information would be appreciated.

Thanks,
John

    There are four RPMs listed here for 1950S. The spreads are all in different directions, so it should be easy to narrow it down, unless it's a new one.

    Spinynorman, thanks for helping, that is an excellent site. Now I'm going to check my other Washingtons for varieties. I wonder why PCGS didn't put the variety on the holder? Its pretty obvious under 5X magnification.

    Placid, thanks for posting the link to the auction. How do you do that?

    When I post a reply or a new topic there are a bunch of different boxes over where you type.
    The fifth one from the left marked http click on it and copy and paste the url of the page you want to link to in the box that comes up. The box will already have http:// in it so either remove if before or after or you will have http://http:// and it wont work.

    I am using msie browser if you have something else the layout might appear different.

    While we,re on the subject of Washington varieties,I recall seeing an anomaly on the reverse that I was wondering if it was a recognized variety.I think it was a missing ribbon? under which the Eagles talon grabs the perch?Does this sound half-way familar to anyone?BTW the ribbon looks like an X on the branch/perch.
    I thought I had heard of this as some Washington Quarter variety.

    jy, I too found a 50-S that I thought was the s/s variety and sent it to ANACS, it came back AU 50 with no metion of the variety, perhaps PCGS was right---------BigE

    With Anacs I believe you have to pay extra for attribution services, but not to have them confirm your attribution. I think PCGS will only note major varieties.

    New to this thread and looking for some direction. Generally speaking where is the best place to find info on the Varieties that are listed on PCGS? I have a bunch of silver washington quarters and it seems like every one has a variety listed but very few of the PCGS images actually show exactly what to look for to ID the variety. My main group is morgans so I am looking at vamworld for those but what about other types not shown in detail on PCGS? thoughts?

    Sup. Morgans are cool - So are Ducatis.

    @KARacing You need not ask the same question in multiple threads.
    Have you tried looking on Coinfacts?

    Yep - I did. It talks about history and generally what to look for but no details on specific varieties.
