Circulated vs Uncirculated

Coins | user_64314

Came across a quarter 1967 without a mintmark. Does that mean Uncirculated ? Thanks

No mint mark means minted at Philadelphia mint?

I would strongly suggest at some point you look for the Official ANA Grading Standards or Coin Worlds Making the Grade book. The first sells for around $35, the other $25. Both have full color images of each grade with a specific definition of the grade as well as wear/mark areas which effect the grade.. I recently wrote a blog on this subject if you'd care to read it.

You have been answered so I will just say this. Typically, a coin with no mint mark means it was minted in Philadelphia. Keep those questions coming. Research the 70 point grading scale we use to learn about the circulated VS Mint State and Proof. You have a lot to learn but it is all fun.🐍

There were not any mint narks on coins struck in 1965-1967, so you don't know where it was struck

My answer was erased by mistake. No mint mark means it was made at any mint .. To be Uncirirculaded means it comes from the mint to you. You have coinage made for us to use everyday. A business strike. The Mint makes many coins not meant for circulation. Read your red book .Welcome! I thought the coin was 87!
