    2019 W Quarter. Which one do i buy?

    In all my years of coin collecting i have never found a key date coin in the wild. When it comes to the new quarters my luck is still the same. 1000 dollars in quarter rolls and all i have is 4 Lowells with the P mint mark.

    So, my best option is to purchase one but which one do i get? I see graded quarters on ebay going for 200+ and ungraded ones going for as low as 20.

    Are these quarters at the lowest cost point they will ever be at or are they priced too high? Would you purchase an ungraded coin and send it in to be graded or leave it as is? Or, skip all that and get the highest grade coin early in the game?

    Also, if i purchase one that has already been graded, or send one in to be graded, which grading service do i go with? PCGS graded coins are going for much higher prices over NGC graded coins. Why is this?

    So many questions! Thanks for your input.

    As a long term investment, no way. If you have a buyer that will pay you more than you pay, turn it. Just my opinion. It's just a quarter with a w on it...

    Any one you can get in your change. I made $54.75 on the one I found in a Coinstar. Why ANYONE would pay $55 for a Quarter is WAY beyond me!

    Well, i just one one of each. I'm not looking to turn the coin for profit but at the same time i don't want to be throwing money away on something that will not at least hold its value in the near future. Since finding a quarter here in central NC is looking pretty grim, i feel certain i will have to purchase one.

    I suspect when the dust settles that the coins will be a $5 coin for each issue. No need to buy a graded one as the prices are inflated now. Wait and watch auctions for ungraded specimens. If you feel that you don't want to wait and miss out, then $20/each will be the price you pay. Just don't expect the series to be worth $100 next year or years afterward.

    I guess all the hype is tied to the low mintage. When you look at other coins with 2 million or less produced you see a significant increase in value compared to other coins. I fear this production will lead to other coins being produced in the same manor and pretty much take the same turn baseball cards took in the 90's. Huge production numbers with a few inserts leading to inflated values and eventual collapse of those values within just a few years.

    I don't know,

    I got 30. I cheated. I bought some of those "ender" rolls on Ebay and got several out of each roll. It cost extra of course. I have also now gone through $15,000 in quarters and found 6 of the thirty that way. In BU for the Lowell and Marianas, the window of finding a BU is closing. The last one in change MIGHT be MS-62, but I doubt it. The first few were MS-64 and MS-66. I have 10 in for grading right now are they are visually flawless, so I'm hoping most grade MS-66.

    There will be 2 million of each kind struck. People everywhere are out looking for them now. Some will be put in the coin machines repeatedly and won't be worth squat. The BU's are the way to go. The population report for the MS-66 is 598 at PCGS as of today. I have one of them. There are 13 MS-67's out there. 843 MS-64's of which I have 4. So they will be around, but think about it, the 843 MS-64's, that's not even one per coin dealer in the US and the BU's are almost done with.

    So you probably should buy for the sake of having soon, as an investment, I wouldn't go there, silver bullion is probably better right now, only the slabbed coins will probably stay up in price over time. The MS-64's started at $300 and are now around $75, so most of the settling out is probably done with. Frankly, if it drops $10 I don't especially care, with a low pop, I think we're close enough to bottom on the graded coins now.

    Well, off to the bank to get another box of quarters. It's impossible (or nearly so) to get a box of just 2019's.

    The fact is, Smokey, that I would guess less than 5% of mintage has been sent in for grading. I wouldn't pay for the cost of grading if you threw in the ms 64 coin free of charge. I'd rather give money to the needy than NGC or PCGS.
    I'm with Terry Soloman. These new quarters are low relief modern coins that are not going to hold their numismatic value over time if at all. I guess the ms 70 would still demand it's greatness, but who cares? What coin collector pays high dollar for a modern coin? My guess is the one that has it sold for more and that's about it.

    Well, boredom finally came and I stopped with the quarters. I do it for the chase, just like detecting. I like having mine in slabs because I don't lose them quite as fast. I still have two good coins missing in the house right now. It's always something. I don't really have any kind of coin collection per se, I just go on tears from time to time. It's the chase for me!

    Smokey, you got it right about the chase. I have never purchased a coin in my life. I prefer to find them while metal detecting or searching my change. Sometimes i pick up a roll or two of pennies but i am not an avid coin roll hunter. So, a thousand dollars of quarters is more than i have ever done for a coin. The reason i am considering purchasing one of these quarters is i feel i may miss out on a potential 1909-s VDB kind of opportunity.

    Ammoman, I think it will be more like a 1950-D nickel opportunity. 2 million is still a lot. Most will be lost or scratched to where no collector would want them. Now is the time.

    As Smokey said, 2M is still a lot. The novelty is the fact that they are minted in West Point and they are only available from circulation (no direct sale to the public). If you are looking to chase a tiny mintage, then look at the San Francisco mintages. The business strikes are minted to demand but they average 1.4M to 1.6M per issue. The strikes are absolutely fantastic and you can assemble a set with San Fran business strikes and San Fran proofs side by side. Take it one step further and you can assemble a San Fran business strike/San Fran Clad proof/San Fran Silver proof. https://mintnewsblog.com/circulating...iful-quarters/
