Hi...
I have done extensive research and cannot find a definitive answer for this possible error I am finding on quite a few coins lately.

The error? is on the Obverse at the bottom of Washington's bust and it is around the initials of the artist.

Opinions/answers are very appreciated.

That is a die crack, starting to form die chips on that area of the bust. Something that I've recently thought of these are probably a die event that happens after a die clash, thus the crack is often see on this area of the quarter obverse design. Sometimes it spreads. (Possibly from another die clash event happens) And sometimes a cud happen on that area:


But the clash would probably have to be a very strong clash to cause the cud to form.

Thank you. It didn't make sense that it was only a die chip as it looks different. Your answer seems to be right on target. I am seeing so many of these on the quarters from 2000 it almost seems to be a very common problem. Similar to Drooling George. I'll put this down in my book as an error and keep my eyes open for more.

That's a die event, not an error, errorluvr.

@err, if you could also add the date and mintmark for this quarter too that would be awesome. As I mentioned on your other thread including this information helps us with the search functionality of this site. Thx.
