Hi Everyone,
I am a new member and just started collecting coins. I mainly look for circulated State Quarters. I noticed that on my 2019 American Memorial Park quarter there is a mark on the girl's cheek and on other coins it is not there. Could this be a mint error on this fairly new coin? Any thoughts would be appreciated. I have attached 3 photos. Thanks.
Demi

to CCF! The mark on the cheek is nothing more than something else, probably another coin, hitting the cheek and causing a small indentation. This is called post mint damage or PMD. Now, if that same little area on the cheek was a raised piece of metal, granted nothing hit the cheek and caused metal displacement in an upwards fashion, that would be called a die chip. These are not mint errors to answer your question.

Yes, would appear to be post strike damage--a nick/hit taken in circulation.

PMD - Post Mint Damage.

I agree, just a hit from circulation. Post mint damage ( PMD), no mint error, sorry.

If it were a die chip it would be raised. But 99% of incuse marks on a coin are from damage in circulation. Only 1% are mint errors. Knowing what to look for is what you should read up on. (Or ask a question about?) Knowing what you are looking at will help speed up your coin searches. Damage to a coin doesn't increase the value of a coin. If it did, we would have no change at all. They all get beat up out in the wild.
