Hello, I am new and I am trying to see what this coin is worth. Me and my husband have just started coin hunting and we are not sure what this coin could be worth. As you can tell from the subject it is a 1981 D quarter. But with a full Denver mint mark. Please help!

First forum.
Your filled D is from a broken pin on the die that forms opening
The line though untied was caused by a rolling machine if you look to
the left of the you you can see the damage continues.
As for value iam not sure but I think there's no added value

I'm afraid your coin is just a common 1981 D quarter with normal circulation damage. I see nothing significant but your looking in the right places. Good pictures by-the-way. Those lines in UNITED you see could be from the coin going through coin operated machines, PMD.

Agreed.

Remember, the die is INVERTED. so the raised D is actually depressed and the depressed center is raised. On the die it looks like a tiny pin and they do break off, creating the filled D.

The filled in D was caused by a Broken Die Post, from the die chipping metal off. That line is Post Strike Damage (happened after it left the U.S. Mint), most likely caused by a coin wrapping machine.

Since those types of errors are so common, never really a big thing so money wise, not much.
