I think the spitting eagle error is the 1983-P.

@pris, normally "squiggly" lines on the surface of a coin are indicative of a coin having been struck by a tired die; however, with the high level of circulation damage on this quarter, I think it is probably just wear and tear.

Maybe (just maybe) remnants of a die clash? I see something odd on the obverse above the bridge of his nose, and also the back of the head above the curl. I found this overlay (thanks Yokozuna!) and it looks possible.

It does look like a clash, but I am not entirely convinced. If so, those would be the heaviest clash marks I've ever seen on a modern coin!

look at the left wing I thought maybe it was a die crack but looking at the picture that dave42 shared it looks similar do you think its worth sending it somewhere to find out what it really is
