So it turns out that being quarantined has sparked a new interest for me. I've been going through my large containers of change and haven't found anything but some greased strikes and Machine Doubling.

I decided to go through my silver stash for giggles and stumbled across this 1963 D quarter with an interesting mark on the reverse side. I can't tell if it's post-mint damage or a possible strike through error. I know it wouldn't increase the value much even if it was a minting error, but I'm excited to find something abnormal and wanted to check with those more experienced. Any ideas?

If it is a struck through, the weight should be normal.

It does look like it was struck-through below the heads of the arrows and I don't see a corresponding flat area on the obv. I'm interested to hear what others think.

Ugh, I guess I need to add a jeweler's scale in addition to a USB scope to the Amazon list!

Make a teeder todder with a popscikle stick a try it with another silver quarter to see if they balance or like the heavy/light person, end up on the ground or up in the air.

I'll need to raid the kid's stuff to see if I can find some popsicle sticks for this purpose. Maybe I can even squeeze in a science lesson with them while I'm at this.

The reason I thought it might be a strike through is because the coin edge seems largely intact, which I figure would be damaged if something applied enough pressure to virtually erase some of the reverse side. On the other hand, I know all kinds of weird things can happen to coins in their lifetimes that might cause this sort of damage.

Looks like a struck through grease error. A keeper.

This may be a silly question, but is it worth getting graded/documented? I know strike through errors aren't all that valuable.

Not worth grading. Looks like a struck through grease. It does have silver value though.
