I really tried to research(just learning). Please tell me if I am wrong on any level(and the reasoning). Observations: 1) Both sides are showing OC (therefore not a MAD) 2) Obverse is Anvil (full reeding toward that side...therefore a reverse die strike...I know that is no biggie). 3)PSD/circular scratch on Obverse(only saying this because it might look like a weak strike, but don't THINK so). 4)Affected Reeding/Rim/Finning(?) issue runs from approx. 10:00(below beak)to the last U in PLURIBUS(Reverse side), and is the same area as the Rim/Finning area on the Obverse....Reeding starts diminishing gradually, void gets larger,then gradually disappears. 5) Cud/PSD/Finning issue(?)Reverse(Hammer) side, w/in affected area 6) Machine doubling(?) of letters seem to be only in unaffected(reeding) area on Reverse. I DO see the die chip on the bird(Have lots of those..so no issue). I have included a picture of a comparison with 2 other coins, to show that the reeding appears to be consistant. The other reeding pictures are to show that it is not all the way around, but gradual. Any thoughts/schooling...particularly tilted die vs. tilted collar?(I am thinking tilted die because of the finning/MD). Or, am I really confused now? Thanks

Not sure about the spot on the rim. Either damaged or small cud. The ring on the obverse is from a coin wrapper and the bigger that normal letters are a form of die deterioration. Keep looking, from my experience nice quarter errors are hard to come by!

This is my first attempt at identifying anything beyond Die Chips, Grease, Off Center and Machine Doubling :) .... I am still in the phase of holding something up in class, saying "Is this one?" I know it's not much Off Center. Trying to get some clarification before I really get confused this early on in my learning. So does anything about the coin resemble Off Center, Partial Collar with a Tilted Die? Anyone? Thanks(just don't laugh).

It's not off-center, though it does look to be/have a partial collar.

That wasn't very clear, but it's all I've got for you at the moment.

Great example of a worn die in VLDS.

It does look like a partial collar and the reverse letters have the classic ATB doubling on the reverse devices.
