1920-S Standing Liberty Quarter with Die Break/Teardrop Cud. Graded ANACS VG-10. This hard-to-find die error is included in the book "Standing Liberty Quarter Varieties and Errors" (2nd edition) authored by SLQ expert and specialist Robert H. Knauss, and appears on pages 315-317. This quarter is of a late die stage with the teardrop cud to the right of Lady Liberty's left knee being the much more desirable larger size. Because of the late die stage, there is also a second smaller cud located next to the 4th star from the bottom on the left portal wall. This error coin is indexed as K-0005 in Knauss' book. Also on page 317, Knauss mentions that the other SLQ expert on the series, namely the late Jay H. Cline, discovered this error in 1994 (yep, 74 years AFTER it was minted!), and considered it "extremely rare." The copy available here is graded by ANACS as Very Good-10. All lettering on the reverse easily clears the rim. I was rather disappointed when I recently submitted this coin for grading, and it came back to me in that low a grade. Considering the eagle on the reverse has only moderate wear with decent details, and the same with the obverse, I thought for certain this coin would grade at least VF-20. I am guessing the lower grade was assigned being that the bottom portions of the 192 digits of the date bleed into the rim. Very recently graded, the slab is BRAND NEW.
