I apologize in advance if my question seems obvious to some. I had come across a 1985D Washington quarter with a cud. As I was examining this quarter by adjusting the settings on my photos I noticed what looked like characters across at least the number "8" in the date. Is there a reference source on this subject? So far I have been unsuccessful in discovering information. Your help is greatly appreciated.

from the level of damage to this coin I expect the "characters" you are seeing are just a trick of the damage

the cud is pretty neat to find though

Thank you. I like to call the quarter my zombie Washington. Your reply makes sense. I appreciate the help. Be well.

to CCF. I am not convinced it is a CUD. Being that large there should be an indent on the opposite side, and you would think it would be already listed here http://cuds-on-coins.com/washington...s-1932-1999/

@drh, first welcome to CCF. Second, it could be helpful to see a pic of the edge of this coin right where that potential cud is. I know that it will be hard to get the focus right, but that should help to determine if this is just metal that has been smudged over as damage or an actual cud. Thx.

That poor, poor quarter. Is there a Dr. in the house?

I'm seeing a highly damaged, compromised quarter--with more than its share of rim damage. I'm leaning toward the assertion there is no cud, given the conversation above and the photos.

The coin probably went through an automobile shredder and then was repaired so it could circulate. A couple well placed blows with a hammer and maybe a little filing will restore most coins to being able to pass through counters and vending machines. Back in the old days a lot of badly mangled quarters like this circulated and very few were being returned to the FED for recoining.

There will probably be a little filing on the edge adjacent to the "cud".

Thank you all for your assistance. You have been very generous with your wisdom. I'll attach an additional view, but based on the characteristics of the coin from that view and the assistance from cuds-on-coins.com, I realize it is PSD.

Not cud, but a good learning experience. Plus I like the overall look. Thank you all for your welcomes.
