Hello and Hi, this very lovely bicentennial quarter dollar has found its way in to my pocket. It is really a gem. Upon a closer look at it, I noticed a ridge line on the reverse running from left hand drumstick up past the torch. It looks like it might be in line with George's head on the obverse. The devices in the date also had me wondering what would make the devices partially flattened, while the other part is angled with a slope. Anyway, thanks for putting up with me. I really like this place. Thank you.

It looks like a clash. Here a Photoshop clash overlay image that shows about where clash marks should be on the coin. The clash through the drummer's wrist was caused by the bridge of Washington's nose.

I agree, looks like a very minor die clash.
Nice images!

Very glad to hear this. As you suspect and @yoko confirmed, this coin was struck with a clashed die.

Ahhh....thank you John1, you are correct. I even did the self chant "right hand facing is left hand for me" and still got it mixed up....

True, but on the DIE where the anomaly originated, it's on the LEFT!

Right?

I can't believe that I didn't comment on your coin, elliottite!

The coin is in fantastic condition! Lot's of luster and very few circulation marks. This is a coin I would love to have in my collection! I have to wonder why it was in circulation.

I know things like this happen all the time, but I always think about this when I see a amazing coin in my change.

I wonder if someone who collected coins for years had this in their collection, maybe because it was a clashed die strike, in this case. All collection have to be passed down to someone as time goes on, but it just makes me a little sad to think that maybe an uninformed or uncaring recipient didn't see a reason to keep it.

*sigh*

So, should I change my username to "CaptianBringdown" or something like that?

Thank you, Yokozuna
I work part time at convenience store as a cashier. I see alot of coins. I am very surprised at some of the coins that end up circulating that never meant to. Just the other day guy comes in and pays for a pack of smokes with some ultra cameo JFK half dollars. Gorgeous coins. I immediately bought them from my till and put them in holders. The coin in this post came to me the same way. Its awesome to find a error on a coin, but to find a error on a really nice coin, is even a more awesome feeling.
