As a true coin nut I'm on a few forums and blogs where I constantly hear complaints about the West Point quarters. From how the Mint handles their release, to dealers and EBAY sellers buying boxes from financial institutions, and so on. While I understand the utter frustration associate with not finding any, I've always stood firm in the belief that they will appear in circulation as intended. To that end, I've also read people who are fortunate enough to find one or two and how they are of lower MS quality or worse. Personally I would expect as much since they are put into circulation, after all.
So, I found myself waiting and biding time. Low and behold, in the second year of their release and on the seven design I found a bright shiny 2020 Weir Farms this morning. Actually two, one being a Philadelphia, as change for my daily routine of stopping for coffee. As I admire my new prize, looking at it with a standard magnifying glass it would be an MS66 or higher for sure, the privy mark caught my attention. Bold and crisp to the naked eye, the addition is quite refreshing to see on a coin meant for commerce. For the gem I hold between my fingers before inserting it into a ring air-tite, I for one am glad that the United States Mint chose to go with the West Point coins and the new feature.
To those as frustrated as I, keep looking. They are out there waiting to be discovered. For sure you could buy them, which I've done with the first three of last year now that the prices are becoming reasonable (under $25 in MS65), yet nothing compares to actually finding one.
