    1937 Double Strike Quarter

    Hi all,

    This is my first post here..I was looking through one of my coin books and was reading about errors on Washington quarters..one of them was a 1937 doubled die. I looked through some of the quarters I had and found one that was minted in Philadelphia (no mint mark). Through a magnifyer I thought I was seeing things, but noticed the doubled die error on the date, and also in the motto (which my book didn't mention). Could anyone tell me if this looks authentic, and its value if it happens to be genuine? Here are a few photos taken at different angles..the doubling is kind of hard to see unless viewed at certain angles and light conditions.







    Thanks for any help!

    Re: 1937 Double Strike Quarter

    My copy of Cherrypickers has a few photos of the real deal. Yours looks very close, but I have too agree that yours is strike doubling. Also Cherrypickers says that less than 12 examples of this variety are known to exist.

    Can I post the pictures from the book?? Or is this where the copyright issue comes in?

    Along with rarity, interest also determines price. There are simply not enough collectors demanding an example of this to warrant higher prices. In other words, not much demand.
