    Anybody know if a quarter without the initials at the base of the neck would be considered rare or valuable. Like an error. ??
    Thanks

    Die Polishing is the process of cleaning the dies used to strike a coin. Over the course of the life of a working die, dirt and grime may accumulate on the die itself. In addition, the die may acquire other imperfections that a mint worker might try to polish away in an attempt to strike "cleaner" coins.

    The die was polished out prior to minting your coin.

    The mint produces so many coins, the Die is polished to prolong its Die life so it can produce more coins. Polishing a Die extends the life of the Die but it also reduces the features on the Die.

    So what are you trying to say? That because of the workers at the mint polishing the dies, the JF is not present on my coin.

    There appears to be a faint and partial part of the initials present. Yes, it was polished out at the Mint. Nice but your not going to retire.

    It happens to many dies. Look at the "Floating roof" and missing designers initials on LMC's, parts of the Liberty headband on Morgan dollars etc. etc. Dies are expensive, they will try to prolong it's productive life as long as possible
