    1921 SLQ - key date

    Was looking for colonial stuff but not arguing with this baby at all (most valuable find to date). Didn't even know this was a key date until after I got home. Glad I didn't clean it there--though I really wanted to see the date--i could see it had a date and was in good shape. Might only be my 2nd SLQ--I forget and would have to pull my silver from the safety deposit box to find out. Ran it under running water after I got home. Sorry the pics aren't better but it's with a flash. Will try to get better pics tomorrow in daylight.

    Thanks.

    BTW, any folks who want to take a shot at the grading, please do so! I'm seeing a discrepancy from my books and the service-graded coins on eBay.

    Also, I'm curious how often these have been found. Anyone with full access feel like searching for me?

    Don't always trust ebay coins even if they are "service-graded ", cause I have seen on auctions sites that sell the actual coin sealers empty so you can self grade an make it look like it was graded by a pro service... Btw according to the tips in the 2010 redbook the grade would probly be Extra Fine

    EF-35 maybe 40, my opinion, nice strike on that full head is really important. Still a damn nice coin

    Re: 1921 SLQ - key date


    What a beautiful coin !!! I would venture a grade of - better than VF-20 and a touch under XF.
    which per 2009 redbook has your retail value at $450. - to $600. Great find ! Argentium.

    Re: 1921 SLQ - key date

    That is one nice-looking SLQ.....and a great date to find. XF sounds right to me. Not much wear on that one.

    Can't find it if you're watching tv at home, your machine isn't on, and the head of your detector is pointed up!!

    Re: 1921 SLQ - key date

    In James F. Ruddy's Photograde, there are separate criteria for grading different dates of SLQ's. Written criteria for EF-40 are:
    "Obverse: Liberty's right knee and the tip of breast will show slight wear.
    Reverse: All the feathers will show but will be worn on the high spots."

    Details of head, shield, and primary feathers of eagle's left wing reverse suggest this might grade EF-45 or higher. At this level of quality, probably best to have PCGS grade and authenticate it in order to get maximum resale value. ANACS would be my second grading choice.
