I got out for just over two hours this morning and hunted a site that has held flea markets since the early 1950's. I dug $5.04 in clad, a Bahamas 25 cent coin, and a dateless Standing Liberty Quarter. It's a type II and dateless so it was minted between 1917 and 1924.

One big drop of silver acid test solution on the date field will bring that date out.
Thanks for the tip but I used to use that stuff way back in the 50's when the SLQ's were still in circulation and the date would show but not be permanent and would kind of rub off. Dealers wouldn't buy them either. You could do the same thing for dateless Buffalo nickels with the same results.

Such a great design on this coin...aside from the vanishing date issue! Well done.
Thank you.......definitely agree that this is one of the best US coin designs ever.

I've never found one but I never skip quarter range so maybe one day I will. I found a slick one and a 1926 in the same quarter roll about 2 years ago so I guess I used up my luck.

Keep at it....even though finding one isn't easy, sooner or later you'll get one.
