So was looking at this and noticed all the letters/numbers on the front look a little funky why is this?

Machine Doubling, circulation damage and perhaps a little DDD sprinkled in. No numismatic value, sorry.

Looks like a lot of Die Deterioration from a worn die.

Looks loke circulation wear to me,and maybe a bit of machine wrapping-counting wear.

Yes I agree with the above. Circulation wear and machine wrapping can flatten out the devices.

Ok just so I understand fully, blue arrows point to DDD areas? Red point to DDD/pmd?So the areas in red can increase in size from DDD? Or is that only because of wear being a factor also?







Apologies for the 4 new photos just trying to make sure I know what I'm looking at thank you guys for your input I do really appreciate it
My curiosity comes from a post a few months back of another one like this except the red arrow areas are not distorted and increased in size on that quarter. The other thing is from the photos it looks like that one had more deterioration pattern. I'm not entirely sure tho.. it just throws me off that all the writing on the front looks like it wants to go two directions almost. It wants to deteriorate towards the rim but at the same time it wants to distort inwards or maybe that's just me being crazy again.. anyway please let me know if pointed out the correct things or pointed at the wrong area so I can study it further in person.
