Hi my name is Sam, I am fairly new to coin collecting and extremely new to talking with others about coins online, however the time has come where I need help. The coin in question is a 1986 P quarter which has what appear to me to be several errors. Obviously the first and most striking error is the missing clad error. This appears to be confirmed seeing as how the quarter weighs in at only 5.4 grams. Another mistake that seemed to catch my eye is that the 6 in 1986 appears, in the right lighting to have an additional trailing 6 maybe even two. Meaning it would read 19866.... the last six(s) is also not in a perfect line with the rest of the date code being tilted down slightly. Please someone help. Any useful information would be more appreciated than words can express. Thank you

To CCF! I think you have an Environmentally Damaged coin, which is Post Strike Damage ( PSD), if it is. If that's the case, then it's only worth face value.

to the CCF! It possibly could have even been buried at one time in soil with an extremely high PH level hence the missing cladding. There are no errors that I see.

@samboslice, first welcome to CCF. Second the mint spec on weight is 5.67 +/- 0.19 g. At the low end, your coin is just about in spec. I tend to agree with E&V on this one. You may be interested in this link:

thank you all for the information. Not what I was hoping to hear but that's how these things go. I am intending to take some more detailed pictures of the doubling on the 1986 and will upload them to this post when I do. Again thanks for all your feed back and references.
