The coin is Machine Doubling, if it were a double die or even a regular strike for that matter than the devices would be of Norman(for standard) or wider(for a double die) the coin presented has thinner elements where doubling is shown which means that it is without a doubt a machine doubled coin!. The only way a doubled die can occur and have thinner devices is if the design/writing is incused which is not the case with this coin.

my PMs are always open, whether you have a question or simply wish to talk.

This has been brought to my attention, and I can't honestly tell you I'm sure what I'm looking at. It presents the classic form of shelving associated with Machine Doubling, yet in far greater strength than you'd expect. MD is rarely that strong. Yet there's nothing whatsoever that looks to me like die doubling, either. When die doubling is so perfectly aligned that all the doubles show absolutely zero offset - rare indeed - it just doesn't get this strong.

Have a look at how the light is playing on the doubling features. First, to illustrate the depth of the shelf but second to note those spots of light at some of the corners. Those are raised points. How do they come to be?

Interesting.

Here is a montage of Pierre V's picture and a regular 2014 quarter.
This is the best I came up. The red outline is that of the normal coin. I am convinced that the elements are not thinner but of the same size and thus a double die. Anyways, I will keep my eyes out for this one and report back with better pictures.

I too see nothing that would indicate DD. This coin looks like it took a bounce to one side either through ejection doubling or maybe 'push doubling' which is often mistaken for DD. You can read about PD at error-ref.com. If it was DD then a lot more of them are out there somewhere, you'd think we be finding more of them by now... just my opinion

After just 20 rolls of circulated quarter, I found one.

Here are the pictures I have promised. Same magnification and lighting was used to obtain both images in the montage. The other pictures shows different sections around the coin.

Your verdict ...
