This is in interesting quarter to say the least.

I see evidence of doubling and even tripling in some areas. There is doubling on almost all of the reverse and rather than posting way too many pictures I have posted the most interesting examples.

There are also striations between the arrowheads and the left wing spreading down into the leaves in uniform pattern.

The wings are doubled into the devices.

So I am wanting expert opinions of what I am seeing. Is this a DDR/TDR or just a LDS. Or is this the result of multiple strikes.

P.S. I looked on Wexler's and there is no listing for a 1969 S Quarter DDR.

Me too! LOL! Thank you. Seems we are on the same page because, like you said, some of it seems flat (like on the letters) and some of it seems like a DD (wings). I'm stumped.

The striations are by the eagles right wing by the way.I do not think it is a doubled die (hub doubling) but most likely just the way they made them back then?

Thank you for your input. I guess I was talking about the wing from the viewers perspective not the eagle's. Thanks for the correction.

Die polishing can create these on the die, then the proof die passed them on to the coins struck by those dies.
