Hello everybody in the Coin community First I would like to thank you all in advance for your expertise and input. On to the mystery. I have a 1965 Washington quarter that appears to be struck multiple times and is possibly on the wrong planchette? But before I get my hopes up and send it off to grading I would definitely need everyone's expert advice/opinion. I am including several pictures that will hopefully assist. Here is what I know:
1965 Washington quarter
No apparent mint mark
Weighing approximately 4.83g
Now I realize that by the first glance it looks like it was dropped in acid or some kind of PMD but please take a close look at the pictures tell me what you think? Hopefully you should notice some lettering that should not be there on both sides. It appears to be a B Just below the L in liberty as well as an apparent A right below that on the obverse. It also looks like the word Unum Is stamped after America in between Dollar and America on the reverse. Regardless I think it's a pretty cool find but again I truly appreciate everybody's insight as I am new and I the hobby.

I am not seeing where it was "struck multiple times". And which "wrong planchette" were you thinking it could be struck upon?

Where did you find this quarter?

My opinion: damaged by acid. It did not leave the mint in this condition. PMD.

Just a normal, but horribly damaged quarter.

To CCF! I agree with acid damage. PSD. Getting it graded would be a big no no. It's only worth face value at this point.

That coin has been 'around-the-block' a few times. Agree with the comments made above. Perhaps exposed to harsh elements while lying outdoors (in the ground?) for a period of time. Too, some extreme heat may have been applied long ago. The appearance of letters and numbers scattered about the coin's surfaces may be examples of Pareidolia.

I've seen a number of coins like these over many years of roll searching.

When you see an edge like this, with the copper looking as if it has shrunk away from its original position, it's almost always acid damage. The clad layers are harder than the pure copper core, so they are reduced less when exposed to acid. The surfaces of the coin just show the same acid damage and not evidence of additional strikes.

Nitric acid soak. Used to do this in my chem classes to help the kids get a visual on how well nitric acid eats metal.

I do have one more quarter that is even more fascinating and intriguing. But to be honest I'm scared that everybody is going to tell me it is PMD when I am even more confident of this one being the real McCoy! Sometimes it's nice living in La La Land, LOL I'll take a few pictures and post it though just to see what you guys & gals think
