I had this quarter set aside just for my USB microscope. I will be including a picture of the same coin from NGC for reference. The soldiers on my coin all have extra metal either surrounding them, or completely obscuring their faces. NEW JERSEY is also doubled, at least I think, there are clear outlines of the letters within the letters. Another thing of note is on the obverse near the neck of Washington, there seems to be two extra pieces of metal stamped in.
Help with this coin would be appreciated.

While it looks impressive, I feel it is Die Deterioration. Note all the thicker areas are flowing towards the rim. I've seen this before on another coin:

Thanks coop, I'll never find anything. What about the raised metal on the neck? No way that's Die Deterioration.

On the left side of the boat? That is the movement of the die metal towards the closest rim flowing to the left. Same thing going on with the devices on the right side, flowing to that rim as well. EPU flowing towards the rim also. Just how the dies wear. The metal movement starts in the center and pushed outwards towards the rims.about a million times with not lubing of the dies. It eventually wears the die out. When they retire the dies some coin look like this on the ATB Quarters:

Hi, Hokuto7291. You have a nice coin with seemingly a combination of thickening of letters, MD, and DDD.

With my newbie eyes, I can see thickening of the letters of New Jersey, EPU, which you indicated. There's a nice split serif of the 2nd R of Crossroads. The rowing pole of the first sailor/soldier seemed doubled.

That's how I look at your coin. Let us wait for the experts' view on your coin.

You have nice pix. What kind of USB microscope are you using? Thanks.

No coop, on the obverse of the coin, my last picture has two bits of metal below Washington's profile.

Hi, Hokuto7291.

Thanks for sharing the name of your USB microscope.

Sometimes, it can be frustrating trying to find something in a coin and it is not there. Just relax and enjoy the hobby, coins will come your way. Patience will pay off. Just keep on learning and posting from your coin hunting. One thing you are getting good at is capturing parts of your coin needing assistance from the experts.

In my newbie opinion, the metals are die breaks/die chips.

Keep on searching...
