Poor value for price paid. At a minimum, coins should be good/better with no culls. Penny wise on this roll but pound foolish on future orders.

I just got a roll of these quarters. As with the roll of Mercury dimes, the roll was a bit short so I disassembled them to ensure I was getting the full 40 quarters. Good on that count. The majority of these quarters are in either About Good or Good condition, and yes they have full dates. The catch is there are no pre-1925 coins--before then, the date was subject to quick wear so coins in Fine condition could be missing a date. They recessed the dates in 1925 so coins in About Good could still have full dates. A few were in nice condition, including one that appeared to be in VF or XF condition. Notably, they are thinner than Washington quarters, accounting for the shorter roll (even the one in VF was thinner). Possibly a shallower design accounts for this. As with the Mercury dimes, there were two surprises. This time, I found two Barber quarters dated 1908. Those quarters were in rather lousy condition. While they are older quarters with a higher collector value, this means they are underweight and having less silver than the Standing Liberty quarters in Good or better (especially the ones in Fine or better). If you are just looking for ounces, I suggest sticking with Washington quarters. Yes, the majority will be in the 1960s, particularly the common 1964. That also means they are more likely to be in XF or AU condition. (They are also cheaper to boot.) However, as I recommend making a hobby out of this project of preparing for hyperinflation, having a few rolls of these quarters helps. Just do not expect most of them to be in AU condition, and do not expect a lot of 1916-24 quarters.

The condition of the coins being pretty poor is to be expected and I have no issue with that. Several of my coins received were actually missing a "full date" as advertised. Although a majority do have the full date completely visible, I would have expected all of the coins to be this way. I received nothing earlier than 1925, which is fine but I wish that was also advertised. I guess "year and mint mark of our choosing" means nothing before 1925. This was my first purchase from Apmex. I had been looking at buying some other junk silver but I may be more reserved about it now after this purchase and Apmex's awkward live chat session (about the missing dates) I was a part of. I hope this review helps some of you if you're considering these coins. Don't get me wrong, they're are some nice coins in here, but I shouldn't have to write a claim about my purchase because coins were obviously just thrown into a roll with little consideration for what they were advertised as.

Disappointed with the condition. I expected all coins to have full dates. Many coins were almost slick and about 75% had just the last digit visible. Not sure why these coins carry a high price relative to other coins from the same time period that are in better condition.

If you are just looking for SLQ's with dates, these are ok. A couple have dates that are barely legible. Most of the coins were good or less. All were from 1925-1930. Only 4 had mintmarks. I guess I had higher expectations. Glad they were on special with free shipping when I bought them

Bought the coins hoping to get an assortment of dates for coin book, but that didn't occur and many of the dates were hard to read if at all. I realize the coins are little older and expected some wear, but I think they were worn more that average usage. Of course I haven't been collecting coins that long.

Rolls of these are not that common anymore. Was happy to see they were available. All had dates, but two of them, and APMEX sent me replacements immediately. Date range was narrow, and they are common circulated coins so they are a bit thin.
