Hello everyone!

I discovered odd error with HUGE date and "In God We Trust" in 1983-P Washington quarter today! It was so interesting coin! It is so amazing and possible to be valuable but I found another similar 1 coin but I believe it must be unique and rare error quarter!

Also, I found 1980-D penny with multiple lines with copper printed something like that, but I don't know what it was called. I believe it was odd and not seen it before. I want to share with this community for your opinions about these coins.

THANK YOU!

First,

The 1983-P quarter was struck from heavily worn dies. Because of production demands and a booming economy, the mints worked dies well past their useful life during this era. As dies wear, they deteriorate. This tends to result in weakly struck coins with metal flow toward the rims and distorted lettering. I believe that is what you are seeing on your quarter. Notice the "ripples" to the left of Washington's portrait, where the metal flow is visible.

The 1980-D cent could be one of two things. On a bronze cent, it could be what is called a "woodie," where the alloy was mixed improperly. More likely, given the late date of the coin, the lines are "roller lines," caused when the sheets of bronze alloy were rolled to the thickness required for punching blanks. It isn't a valuable coin, but it is worth keeping because of the educational value in learning the minting process.

Just a suggestion. When you post coins, it is helpful to post one coin per topic, and to post obverse and reverse photos of each coin. Sometimes there are clues to what is happening that can be figured our more easily with both photos.

Others will be along and weigh in on your coins.

Again, welcome!

As far as your cent goes..yes those are roller lines...I call them modern woodies and try to collect one from each year and mint, however alone they have no additional value. But I like them. As far as the quarter, Yes fortcollins know his stuff therefore I must agree.

to CCF, good luck on future finds, have fun and keep asking any and all questions you might have....

On the cent, I believe the lines are called Feeder Finger lines, produced in the final stages of the minting process (correct, coop?).

And yes, it is most helpful limiting your posts to one coin per thread. That helps us to better help you.

to the CFF! Please stick around and join us!

DDD on the quarter and as roller lines as well. Feeder lines? New one on me. Must've been thinking Feeder Finger lines or scratches.

to CCF. Roller lines on the cent and a worn die issue on the quarter. Neither has much if any premium,IMHO.

Yes, those are roller lines on the cent.

FYI- There will be an article appearing in Errorscopes (possibly the next issue?) on roller lines written by Will Brooks. I may have to finally join CONECA to see the article.

Pete is correct. They are rolling lines. They appear after the coins original surface disappears. In time, they wear off the coin. But they are not a woody. A woody is a poor mix of copper in the planchet. The rolling lines are topical. (They are on the surface)

The quarter looks altered.
