*** Edited by Staff to Add Year / Mintmark / Denomination to Title. Titles are Important! ***

I have a 2007 Washington State Quarter that has a possible striking error. My wife found it in a roll of quarters back in 2007 at her retail job. Could someone please help me with value?

To CCF! Nope, sorry. All Post Strike Damage ( PSD). Cannot happen at the U.S. Mint. It's just not how it works. Worth face value.

Any idea what caused the defect ? The "ground edge" markings are uniform around the quarter and on the edge of the quarter has a lip like it was struck rolled outwards.

Well for sure it was someone after this quarter left the mint. That makes this damage--interesting looking to be sure--but plain damage. My guess is that someone used a metal file on one side and was careful to remove about the same amount of metal with each stroke around the coin.

Added: in looking at the edge, you can see where the excess metal has rolled up onto it.

Also, welcome to CCF!

Is the coin flat or slightly bowed?

That is calculated damage. The only thing I can think of otherwise is a partial collar strike and the obverse is essentially broadstruck. The problem is that's not what a broadstruck coin looks like.

It's been damaged. Not an error.

Sure, bring it into your local coin shop and ask their opinion. I feel pretty confident that you will get the same answer from them as you have received here, but of course you should fully investigate this until you are happy/accepting of the answer. If you don't mind, please follow up on this thread when you have your second opinion. Thx.

Not personally, but I did a Google search and it looks like the nearest coin dealers are B P Coins & Collectibles in Marshall and Coin Cottage in Terre Haute:

I hope that helps.
