i apologize for the poor pictures, but I have a usb microscope in the mail (hopefully). I haven't attempted to clean the quarter and there's some stains on it but just showing you what I got exactly how I got it.

@CP, first welcome to CCF. Second, when I crop, enlarge, and enhance this area, it looks like several letters of LIBERTY (including the T) are damaged.

first, thank you for taking a look at my coin as well as for the warm welcome. I was worried I would accidentally post in the wrong forum or mislabel my post so please let me know if I did something wrong or if there's a format I should stick to when posting.

I'm a total rookie so I assumed this coin would be the result of damage but I'm just starting to catch the coin bug so I got a little excited when I finally saw something a little out of the ordinary but I figured there was a good chance it was just damage based simply on the odds of actually finding an error coin so easily. I do hope to bug y'all some more in the future as I keep eyeballing all the change that I get.

thank you. I knew I was finally starting to nerd out on coins because I was super excited to find a 'P' mint quarter. I live on the west coast and it's the first non-'D' coin I've found since I began paying attention so unfortunately for the rest of you, you'll never ever see this busted-ass dirty coin anywhere again because it's going to live in a little plastic bag in my room forever.

The opportunity cost of ownership is low, so by all means keep it!

i'll have to look into it but I've heard that before, just couldn't verify it cause I couldn't find consensus from spanish speaking people. my name is a reference to 'Idiocracy' so I wouldn't doubt that it likely translates to a dumb/funny term.

I wondered if you have a clash on the obverse and could find the overlay. Made a new one and later found the old one, dumped it and kept this one:

i'll try and get a better picture but I'm inclined to believe those who say it was damage because it appears over several letters. I ordered one of those cheap usb microscopes and I plan to go over everything with that but I'm thinking about trying out a few of the phones I have at my disposal in the meantime and if I can get a better photo of both sides i'll share it.

An incuse mark on a coin is 99% of the time, damage to the coin. Only 1% of the time it is a mint error. While there are a lot of different errors, damage is mostly the cause that altered coins.
Here is a site that covers these mint errors:

It will probably take a month of reading just to scratch the surface of what is there. But well worth the read.

by "incuse mark" you're referring to something on the flat part of the coin? this is a totally new term to me and from what I seem to understand. incuse refers to the parts that are carved into the coin as opposed to a relief which is raised?

i tried googling it but every use of 'incuse mark' I found seemed to use the word to define itself.
