Hello everyone!
I found this quarter in my pocket with some other change and when I looked closer I noticed an error like I've never seen before..
Any help or insight on this would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
Trav

Not a mint error. Some type of PMD.

@taf, first welcome to CCF. Second, yes those square and angled depressions are damage occurring after the coin was struck rather than mint errors.

As stated above, it is not an error, it is damage that
happened after the coin was struck. Value 25 cents.

I have to disagree with that it happened after it was struck. It is raised up around the hole on both sides of the coin. Here is a better picture of the front side of the coin and in the hole you can see that it is a copper color.. it is raised on the reverse side around the hole just like it is on this side

You have the right to disagree with us,but it is what it is...PMD. You can always send it in to a grading company, ANACS is least expensive, but you would be wasting your money none the less.

I'm seeing post-strike damage. I agree with John1 above. If you do submit it to a reputable 3rd party grading/assessment service, please let us know the result. Thanks.

It's just Post Mint Damage (PMD.) Toss it back and keep on looking!

Try to think about an meteorite hitting the earth, the impact creates a mound of dirt around the crater that is what happened to your coin. It looks like a square punch was hammered on it.

If it's PMD, then how can it have a raised impression around both holes? It has a copper colored chunk on the face side of the coin that is blocking part of the hole. When you flip the coin over to look at the other side of the hole, it is not the same size as the as the other side and it does not directly line up with the hole. It also has a raised impression around it. Ifnit had been struck with something post mint then it should have an indention on it at one of the holes.

Damage like this would make this coin a cull coin. Not a plus for the coin.

There are countless ways that a coin can be damaged but unless you were there
at the time, you may never know how it happened.
The thing to remember is that there are a limited number of things that can happen
to a coin when it is struck creating an error
You have been told this by numerous very experienced members so unless you can explain how
this could possibly happen during the striking of the coin, the only alternative is that it is damage.

to the CCF Just a wild guess here. I think this coin was damaged from a spot wielder.

First, the dark item is in the same place on both sides of the coin. Here is a link to 25 cent overlays to help show how the areas do line up. http://www.maddieclashes.com/twenty...nt-overlays/

My guess is that the dark metal is magnetic because it looks like an older tapered cut nail. They are/were used for nailing down oak flooring or wood to concrete.



Put a magnet on it to see if it is magnetic.

The tapered part would push the metal outward as it was driven deeper into the coin. (In the reverse side and out the obverse.) This could explain the raised metal on both sides of the coin. Then the nail was cut off and circulation did the rest.

It has interesting PSD. I like it more than most PSD coins.
