The reason I asked to see the Reverse as well .Pretty simple
I would like to know if the three coins are from the same die pairings.
This is a neat little original group worth looking at the entire coins.
Those are NOT well placed scratches .

So if the consensus is that they are die cracks, were do I go from here? This seems to be fairly unique to have three coins showing the same die crack. What would the value on these be? Is there a value on them?

Rothery, maybe it was my tired eyes last night, but it was hard for me to tell whether the lines looked raised or indented. That's what I meant by I can see it both ways. Am I making sense about what I meant? (I know you know the differences in die cracks and scratches).

Posted are the Obverse and Reverse of the individual coins for your viewing pleasure.

Thanks for the new pictures. So the middle picture, without the crack going into the fields like the first and last pictures, also has cracks at the bottom of the bust going through the 9 to the rim? If so then that coin did not come off of the same die as the other 2. That's just what I'm seeing - thoughts?

I have three 1955 quarters that I purchased out of an uncirculated coin roll

This was OP's opening statement . All 3 of those Quarters do not look like they came out of an uncirculated roll . In my opinion they are MS-60 at best . Devices are shabby, many hits ,dings , scratches, etc.
Sorry Red Leader not to bash you , just trying to present my opinion . I can very well be wrong , everyone is entitled to voice their opinion .

No worries T-bop, to me they are already near the top of my list of coins in my collection. I do not have a ton of new coins as most of my coins have been found in circulation, or purchased as circulated. I do feel as though this completes my collection, or at least checks a box off, since I have never found anything like this before. My next step is definitely going to be to get them looked at and possibly certified or appraised. I do not know how far I need to go in a case like this. To me it is pretty cool to have this, even a set of the same die break is cool, to have two different die breaks is even better. I did not catch that break on the 9 because I was so caught up with the other breaks. I appreciate the candor and the open discussion over my coins. I learned something with all of this.
You guys are all pretty awesome!!

All three are off the same obverse die , the crack is progressing .
As to not being original and BU , nonsense . They are baggy as
stated but obviously mint state on my 27 inch .
MS 60 is probably about right .

Looks like a common place for a die crack. On Heritage I found 6 of them in the first 12 coins, and one in a lot of 3 quarters is a 1952-D. It's so common that I'm wondering if it's a master die that was cracked.

Keep them if you like, but there is little if any premium for them.
