Hi everyone. New here. Going through my pocket change I came across this coin. Could these errors be significant in anyway? Thanks in advance for your help. Things to look at:
Obverse side: United States is present - O of OF is present-America seems to be missing. are in Dollar is very faint. IN GOD WE TRUST- E in WE is very faint, T in TRUST very faint.
Reverse side: Date is present though faint. E PLURIBUS UNIUM extremely faint, though S and you is somewhat defined. Farthest music note on left is faint. The A and E in LOUISIANA PURCHASE is very faint. Outline of country is pretty well defined except where Florida is located. State imprint lacks texture detail. I think that it may be nothing but could be something? Hope pics are ok. Let me know if more pics are needed, I have pics of a normal LA state coin.

It doesn't seem to be a big deal, looks to be struck through grease to me, though it is a pretty extreme example. I've found a few like this myself, 'T' in Trust missing on the obverse, no 'Oak' after 'The Charter' on Connecticut. It's worth keeping for the cool factor, but other than that I don't really think it's worth more than face.

I found this web site and the coin I have almost exactly fits this person's description(4th degree) of the quarter. Check it out its interesting.

Hi,

When a coin is struck through grease and has this much detail missing, it is worth keeping. In the overall scheme of things, they are a common error type but this much detail missing makes it collectible.

Thanks,
Bill
