I found this quarter and held onto it.. it's a 1992 P and the color is odd. I'm too new to collecting to know whether this is something worth holding onto or not. Also, theres something at the bottom of the "T" in Liberty and below the "Y" in Liberty. Then on the reverse side there is something in the feathers under the Eagle's feet. And part of the 2nd "U" in "UNUM" seems to be missing.. please help

@cato, first welcome to CCF. Second, to me it looks like this quarter has surface staining and various nicks and gouges consistent with almost 30 years of circulation. Sorry but I don't see any mint errors.

Ok! Thanks yall! Quick question, not really regarding just this coin, but how do you clean coins? I get some that I can wipe stuff off of them but have no idea how to get the rest. I thought about a soft toothbrush but I dont wanna scratch them for sure

The only safe things to use is 100 percent pure Acetone and Verdi-Care. http://goccf.com/t/300896

It might help a little, but the stain won't completely go away.

No sorry that is a bad idea. Just a bath in acetone as noted by @e&v.

Unless it's a well circulated coin, I wouldn't "wipe stuff off" but maybe pick off gunk with a toothpick and then the acetone bath.... to CCF have fun and good luck on future finds
