Very cool stuff.
I came across this quarter that looks like it has a blister. Its definitely not a die chip or PMD. I have never seen this before so I believe it to be a very rare mint error.
Has anyone else ever seen this before? What causes it?

Thanks for your help everyone!

Its been exposed to heat, probably a torch or soldering iron. since copper has a lower melting point than nickel, it melted within the clad layer, and the weakened nickel “gave way” and warped. At least thats the most likely way for me to see that happenening. Either way, It is PMD.

Just Post Strike Damage (it happened after it left the U.S. Mint). It was exposed to heat, causing the metal to bubble. Worth face value.

Clad coins with trapped gas subjected to a heat source (after strike) can expand the clad layers and exhibit bubble formations. Did this one split the edge apart? Thanks, Doug.
