    Hello, I am new to this site. I have a question. we have been saving coins for years and decided to go on vacation and decided to cash our coins in. we started going through them and found 2 1978 quarters with a dot on each one of them by the ponytail. Is there a value to these because we have 1977 quarters, some with dots and some without. any help would be appreciated. We are not sure if the 1978 is supposed to have a dot or not.

    could it be a very small "D"?

    Welcome to the forum. Your coins probably have the "D"(Denver) mintmark on them. The ones made at the Philadelphia mint did not have a mintmark in 1978. There were 287,373,152 quarters made at the Denver mint in 1978, so they are only worth their face value(25 cents).

    1978 quarter

    I have looked at the quarters till I am cross eyed. Is there a website that has a picture of the quarter with the dot? It looks like a dot, I have seen D's on the earlier dates and they are recognizable as a D. Thank you for any help.

    Looked all over my room for one of these... didn't have that many, but this is a denver minted quarter from 1968 to present, it's next to his pony tail.

    Still a good eye to question the abnormal! Keep searching!

    Thank you for posting the picture. Is that a D or a Dot?

    That would be a "D"
