Any Washington Quarter Variety Experts?

I was going through a roll of silver quarters and found this 1935. The d mintmark appears to be over another one. Anyone aware of this variety?


Oops. Edited to remove reference to VAM. I guess that only applies to Morgan dollars.

    It looks like it could be over an S to me..

    I can't find a listing anywhere for such a coin and can't recall ever hearing of one.

    This looks like a damaged punch but may have some other causative factor. This
    effect is seen often.

    No known OMM for 1935. Looks like it could be some type of strike doubling to me-I've seen a very similar thing on a lot of 1964-D quarters.

    Thanks for the responses. Is there some place I can send it to for professional evaluation?

    According to John Feigenbaum, author of "The Complete Guide to Washington Quarters", regarding any varieties for the 1935-D, he states, "Two repunched mintmark varieties are reported in The RPM Book". It's not much info, but hopefully it helps a little.

    What you might have is a D/D west (RPM #1) though in circulated condition, it is hard to say. As Craig suggested, it could be just a mushy mint mark. Not a great deal of additional value even if it is a RPM #1.

    Interesting. Using a few keywords gleaned from this thread, I was able to locate the following website:

    Coneca Listing

    Does the "West" designation refer to the lower mark?

    At what point does the variety become listed in the Redbook?

    I sure am learning a lot from this forum! Thanks!image

    Jeesh... Thank you. There are indeed two listed. I must have looked under dimes or something.

    In the Coneca listings what do the terms UVC, DMR, EDS, MDS and LDS mean?

    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.

    buy the books or search online
    just because you can, does not mean it will increase the value $18

    @davewesen thanks - not sure how I missed this. Will help with my morgans but while there are a ton of variations listed in the price guide for washington quarters, they are not listed here. So does that mean they don't recognize them or is their list just old? I am trying to find specifics - for example the 1941-D quarter has both a 1941-D 25C DDR FS-801 and 1941-D 25C DDR FS-101 but the pictures in the price guide don't specify what is different about them. Why is that?

    Your best hope for help, and this isn't written in a mean-spirited way, might be to simply start a new thread instead of resurrecting years-old or decades-old threads and plopping your post on the bottom. Good luck!

    The FS numbers come from a book, CHERRYPICKERS' GUIDE TO RARE DIE VARIETIES OF US COINS by Fivaz and Stanton that has descriptions and pictures. Can get some here with more stuff not listed.
