Coin and Paper Money Collecting/off stamped quarter


i have a quarter that is a 1983 and is stamped off center so much that you can hardly see the letters quarter dollar on the back. On the front the word liberty is cut in half.  there is a blank space on both sides. any idea what it may be worth?

Hi Mike,

This level of off-center strike would actually still be considered minor.  The optimal amount of being off-center is actually about 50% -- yours sounds like 10-20%.  As such, I would estimate its value at about $5.00

I hope this helps,

My strong familiarity with all U.S. Mint coins, extensive reference library, and close relationships with many other dealers allows me to identify just about any coin made in the USA. I receive regular updates to all the current price guides -- both wholesale & retail -- to provide accurate values. So, with a good description or pictures, I should be able to identify and value any U.S. coin you have.


I've been a coin dealer since the 1980's and a coin collector since the 1960's. I specialize in U.S. Silver Coins and have an active online website -- The Working Man's Rare Coins -- -- offering information and inventory in U.S. coins.
