Does anyone have any insight about this coin? Not sure if it's an error or not? Thank you.

It's not an error coin. It's a stain. It's Post Strike Damage (it happened after it left the U.S. Mint).

Tell us more about this jagged curve from the upper left rim down to the bust. Is it raised in any way, or simply flush with the surfaces around it?

Im not so sure it's not an error. It's raised on one side and depressed in the back. Unless the whole coin is bent. Does it look straight from the side? It looks like a pretty awesome example of a grease strike through. You can see how it affects the devices like a normal strike through should. Unless it's bent, I say it's legit and pretty sweet

Unless it's the dreaded dryer coin?!?!? (Inaudible woman screaming in the distance) what kind of camera setup are you using and is there any way to get better pics? If you're using a cell phone I can give you a couple pointers that might help. There looks like there might be some other stuff going on with it plus there's a DD bicentennial quarter you should be on the look out for

I do agree that better pictures will be needed for an accurate answer. So far, it looks like a stain on the coin.

Hello to everyone, sorry I did not get back to you any sooner. I took some more pictures. Hope these are better then the last ones. I am new to collecting coins so any insight would be great. Thanks for your input. I appreciate.

This is how I would describe the coin. On the obverse right side it is a normal looking silver quarter, but over on the left side it drops off and loses it's normal silver look.

The same thing happens on the reverse side of the quarter, it drops off slightly on left side and loses it's normal silver look and on the right side it looks like a normal silver quarter.

I am using the Plugable USB 2.0 Digital Microscope with Flexible Arm and Stand USB2-MICRO-250X. to take pictures of my coins. I just did not do a close up view before. So, maybe the second batch of pictures will help.

No, this coin is not bent and I don't think it is a dyer coin either. Thanks anyway.

Any new information about this coin would be great. Thank you for your time and help.

I'm assuming when you say it drops off you mean there's a difference in the thickness of the coin in those areas, like it's sunk in a little? If so then I would def think strike through. If it we're a stain it wouldnt affect the other side of the coin in the exact opposite way. Where you see the coin sunk in a little on the obverse, it is affected exactly in the same spot on the reverse. A stain wouldn't do this. I think it's a legit strike through and a really cool one at that. Just my opinion.

Possible something was spilled on the coin. Like? Milk or something not clear. It might just rinse off if it isn't stained.

I am still unsure, but the pics are definitely better, thanks!

Have you tried soaking it in acetone to see if there is a foreign substance on the coin? If I couldn't tell in hand, that would be my first action.
