What I'm seeing is a badly damaged quarter--it did not leave the mint's striking camber in that condition. Hypothetical pricing would be irrelevant since a coin as pictured couldn't be freshly minted.

A machine rolls the letters on to these coins as a last step after they have been struck am I correct?

That is not correct. There are two dies, obverse and reverse, that contain all the detail. Those dies are pressed together under high pressure with the coin blank between. All detail is stamped onto the coin in a single action.

No.. there is 2 dies, and a collar that engages.. everything is struck at the same time.

Suggest you read up on how coins are struck and then you would realize
that it would be impossible for what happened to your coin to have happened during the striking of the coin.

Do a google search for "how US coins are minted". Lots of information on the minting process.

damaged. I was sceptical about peoples opinions here at first but once your realize how the coin is made you realize there is only so many things(errors or die damage) that can happen during the production of a coin. There is a set list of errors if it does not fall into any of the possible errors that leaves damage as the culprit. There is a set amount of things that can cause errors, but an infinite amount of possibilities for PMD(post mint damage) many of these members are pros and some even write the books on this stuff, you can take there opinions to the bank.

There is really no question about it, it is damaged by heat. They actually show up on here quite often. As suggested, do a little research on how coins are made and you will see that there is no way this could happen during the minting process. In fact, check out this other post,http://goccf.com/t/407882

This type of damage throws people for a loop quite often. I have a dime with a similar bubble, but more pronounced on the reverse. I've held onto my dime for educational purposes.

BTW- There is damage to the reverse. The flat area below "EVERGREEN" is opposite the bubble that is on the obverse.

We have been seeing a lot of these heat damaged coins lately. These must be a sale on blow torches nationwide.
