I am new to the forum and was looking for some input on this coin that I found going through about 30 dollars worth of loose change. I enjoy the artwork and history behind these coins but I am inexperienced at what to look for while cherry picking, something I can afford to do. I know that there were some Alaska State Quarters that were minted with an extra claw, the coin I have looks like two extra claws. Would someone please take a look at this coin and offer thoughts.
None of the Alaska quarters were minted with an "extra" claw. The claw portion of the die design is a point of inherent weakness subject to repeated chipping so you can find many AK quarters with die chips in the claw.
