Okay so theres obviously alot of doubling on here. But what I really want to find out is what's going on in the first picture, where the neck connects to the body of the eagle and the line coming from his beak. Does anyone have an idea or know where I can look for info on this?

to the CCF!

The top rim looks like it's out of round. Possibly from a strike on the edge at the point just over "OF." Is the edge flat in this area?

The doubling looks like Machine Doubling, but the line down from the eagle's beak MAY be from clashed dies. The other lines in that area don't look like die clash and I'm not sure what could have caused them.

Here's an overlay that shows where it might show areas that are clashed.

Yokozuna, I'm not sure about the flat spot, I will check it out again when I get off of work though!
Thank you for the info on the possible die clash! I'm going to do some research on it now! I've seen identical lines on other quarters and thought it was a "spitting eagle" at first but was told that it was just damage. Seeing the overlay you posted though makes alot more sense!
Thanks for the info! I really appreciate it!

I knew it was Machine Doubling, I didn't ask about the doubling, I asked about another part of the coin. If you're not going to help educate or at least point me in the right direction please stop replying to my posts. I'm sick of seeing "spend it" with zero information on everything I post.

It is rim damage to the coin. That is why it is distorted. All I see is an issue with Machine Doubling.

So I know I'm understanding correctly, the damage on the rim is what caused the issues around his neck and the line coming from his beak in this picture?
