I have been referencing the forums here for about a week now and finally decided it was time to join.
My husband and I have been collecting pocket change for about 3 and a half years now.
We never looked at the gobs of change in our pockets, just came home and emptied them into a large 3 gallon jug.
Anyhow, we recently decided to turn it in, since it was over half full, but I decided I should go through it before we turn it in at the bank.
I have come across several questionable coins, which I will post later, but yesterday, I found a 1980 (my birth year) Washington quarter
. It is a beautiful specimen, and the shine is actually what caught my attention. Considering its age, I wouldn't think it would have looked so good.
Ok so, I was getting up close and noticed the mint mark, I first thought it was a d. So I broke out the magnifying glass, and noticed a little difference. So I got the microscope to really zoom in, and now I'm not sure what to make of it. Can someone please help me out? I would appreciate the feed back.
Thanks in advance, jen
