Hi
My name is Agnes, I am from N Potomac MD USA. Thanks for inviting me t join the coin community.

I found this 1989 quarter with the following errors 1) The already reported faded second 9 in 1989 is present. However, the "IN" in the IN GOD WE TRUST appears to be smugged together (running into each other, letters not sharp). In addition, on the reverse at the lower portion of the coin the TER in QUARTER is scratched off or smugged making it difficult to read . The is an indention before the D in Dollar. This error is very obvious and forms irregular depression and elevation inbetween the "TER D "of QUARTER DOLLAR. The right branch on the wreath just above the depression is equally disfigured too. Is this a new find? Where can I find the record for this error.

Thank you

Agnes

Hi Agnes. It looks to me like it is post mintage damage. Also sometimes coins can have a weak strike causing some letters to look weak a smudged while others are more clear.

If it's anything besides PMD, it might be die stress.

Either way it's nothing big.

I thought it almost looked like a cast counterfeit, but not sure who would bother to counterfeit your basic clad Washington quarter.

Who knows with this coin? I 'll hold on to this coin. There is very faint "D" by Washington's ponytail it is not showing in the picture.
How do I know if it is a real coin? Should I take it to a coin dealer? Should the authorities become aware of such coin circulating?

That would the normal location of the mintmark, indicating the coin is from Denver. I see no reason to doubt the authenticity of it as a genuine quarter, it has just sustained some circulation damage.

It is unlikely to happen much anymore, but back in the 80s and before, people would sometimes counterfeit coins to take to the casinos and put through the slot machines.
