Need a little help diagnosing this quarter. It can be either one if you ask me. I don't know what are the differences between the two types of errors. Any help appreciated. Thanks again

I think it is a Greaser,a weak strike would have very weak looking rims.

Thanks john1 and lawest. I appreciate the help. I wasn't sure because of the strong bust and weak letters. I didn't know the weak strike had weak rims also. Good info. Thanks

A Greaser.

with a die adjustment strike, lower parts of the design are well struck up, but the higher points are either weekly struck or even not at all.
With high grade examples of die adjustment strikes, radial mint luster in the fields can still be still be present.

Thanks sel 69l. So it would be the opposite of what I have. Stronger letters weaker bust. That makes sense. The bust being the lowest shows the least detail. Good to know

The DDO's on the States and ATB Quarters are 98% of the time on the center earlobe and motto close in devices. So it would RTY would not be hub doubling. You are looking at the outside edges of the devices. Hub doubling has spread in the centers of the devices.


Note the spread on the centers of the motto?

Thanks coop. Although the devices look on the normal side in most parts the right arm of the Y looks extra thick and above the right leg on the R also looks extra thick. To me at least. Just something I noticed. Looks kinda weird or different than normal

Here's a pic of my doubled die with a different hub doubling rotation. Looks similar to me that's why it caught my attention. Thought it was strange on this coin

Thanks john1. Went on error-ref and looks like a weak strike is possible for this one as the dollar coin illustrated there also has a fully struck bust and the letters are not present towards the rim. I was going off memory when I saw the fully struck center and thought it looked like something I saw before labeled die adjustment or something to that nature. Now I know the correct general term is weak strike. I wonder if this could be one. The examples on error-ref are completely missing the outer design elements but I guess it could be a possible

The devices appear normal in size, no DDO. Contact marks altered them:
