Looks like a pressed coin issue. By the light I can see the stars are incuse. How? The raised devices have the light on the left. The incuse devices have the light on the right in this image. Also the star is pressed into the E on WE. Interesting image. Do you mind if I keep it?

Some have asked about my images I use and I'm glad to say, I've completed an Educational DVD of these. Become a supporter of this site, send me your address and I will send you a DVD. Many have loved this so far. I just completed version 11. The most updated version yet. So if you haven't got a copy yet, it is a good time to do so. I also have a DVD and one for windows media player. The one for media player is nice for your computer as it is clearer in images. Let me know which you would prefer. If you are a new member and wish the DVD, make your donation and have them pass on to me where you would like this shipped. Most have really appreciated this to increase the coin knowledge. Thanks for your support!

I was thinking a Sacagawea dollar reverse, which has stars, but the "OF AMERICA" font is serif on those. Like Drsandman2 says, the stars match SBA, but it doesn't have that oblique, sans-serif "OF AMERICA" on it. It's not a match for any other denomination. Maybe it's one of the other state or territory quarters?

Aha! It's an Indiana state quarter.

A damaged coin. Somebody squeezed the two together in a vice.
