Hi , this is my first time to use this site I'll try and get it right. I know enough to be dangerous.
I have a 1983 Washington quarter and I'm hoping to get others opinions on the double dieting and what the value might be. I appreciate any comments.

Given the photos posed, I'm not seeing evidence of a doubled die. Please post larger, full coin, high resolution images of both sides--obverse and reverse. Thanks.

@cart, first welcome to CCF. Second, other than a broken post on the mintmark, I'm not seeing much for minting issues. If you are seeing doubling on UNITED, can you please post a more brightly lit close-up to this thread? Thx.

Note the mottled look of the devices. That tells me that the die was aging and in the VLS die state and going into the VLDS. Note how mushy the devices are? On a doubled die you should see spread on the devices in the centers of the devices.

Note how much thicker the devices are on this 1968-D DDR-001. When you compare them with normal devices, then you see how much larger they are:

That is why I recommend Side by sides to tell the difference, sometimes include a personal image to compare with:

Note how you can compare two to your coin in the center? Just a few ideas on how I figure out what is a match to what?
