No date but a far off-center uncirculated Washington. I measure the percentage off and don't guess at them. This one was 18.0mm/23.9mm.

Certainly worth more than 25.
It's one of those things that would be worth even more if the date was there.

How much is it worth?
I don't know since I'm not into error coins.
Describe it as if there were no picture.

What's up with the bizarre smear of heavy polishing on the obverse?... how does one polish only a small part of a coin that hard anyways?

I've seen that polished area on other off-center coins. Would love to know what causes it.

Nice error but how in the heck does that fit in a roll of Quarters ? I know it's like that until it gets to the distributors ,but then the distributors roll them and send them to different banks . Unless I'm missing something it just doesn't make sense how people find these kind of errors . I guess you can tell I'm not an error collector .
Don't take life too seriously and remember it is just a passing fad ......

If I venture to guess, it would be Two sources of distribution that I can think of:

1- Mint employee assisted
or
2- Found in distribution centers after getting rejected by rolling machines and then sold off to whole sale buyers! that would be my guess.

It's also possible to find these in a mint sewn bag of Quarters. It's pretty rare to find them in there, but it does happen sometimes.

A note about these coins got into collector hands.

My aunt was in upper management at a bank. Back in the day coins were ordered from the mint and arrived to the bank in bags. There was $1000 in quarters, $50 in cents. I am not sure of all the denominations. My aunt made sure that she was the one to open the bags. The bank was responsible for rolling the coins. My aunt had a bowl of these off center coins setting on the dresser in here house that sehe pull from the original bags.
