I'm not sure what might be causing the discoloration on your quarters but with so many from original rolls it seems like something is happening from the mint.


I like the burnishing images Coop provided but isn't burnishing used only for proof coins?

Thanks Petespockets55 and Dearborn. I think this is an error that has yet to be defined according to what I've been reading. There's a post on this site about striation line coins that starts to cover the issue but remains open to discussion. I dont think any with the crescent shape were a part of the equation at the time. Not that these were the first created or found but maybe the others were questioned due to circulation. I wasnt aware this is a questionable error until a few days ago. I'm just confused looking for any info as to what exactly I'm looking at. These may or may not give some insight into the cause

Burnishing has been discussed as a potential cause along with staining from dirty rollers or possibly annealing. I dont think there's a definitive cause that's accepted. The lines in the crescent shape made me think this was from annealing but I'm far from an expert. Maybe someone with more experience can explain what's going on because I certainly cant

I was thinking roller lines as well. I've got a Lincoln with very similar features.

Just got mine back from TPG today. Came back MS65 Improperly Annealed. These 2 examples were the 2 of the 11 I found that had the most discoloration across the obverse and reverse. The others that I found (all in the same uncirculated box from the bank) have various degrees/patterns of the discoloration.

Thoughts on whether or not to send the rest in? Any increased value?

Thanks for the update MrBreeze. The ones you have are beautiful. I'm unsure of value but I'd sure like to buy one of those. Can you post some more pictures? I like the look of these coins

I read somewhere that they go for $30 to around $130. Should be interesting to see what they sell for

@Willburton I'm interested in seeing what you have also. I think I have a few older coins saved with some striations lines on them. Time to dig em out and see what's to them

I think this turns striation lines into an annealing issue


IMHO, I think they are separate and happen to both occur on these coins.

Some of your images seem to show a weakness of strike near the rims that also coincide with the prevalence of these striation lines.

If I remember correctly, weakness of strike, tilted dies, tapered planchet or metal flow into the devices were some of the reasons for the striation lines still being visible.

(We might need to add uneven planchets to the list of causes for the striation lines still being visible after the strike. With three layers of metal on clad coins there may be more chances for irregular thickness to occur on any of the layers during the production.

Thanks Petespockets55. I'm glad you brought that up because I was kinda thinking the same thing. It may be coincidence that these errors collided at the same time here on these coins or this could be something in itself and unrelated to other striation lines. Who knows not me just guessing
