    Yes Hello. I was going through my late Grandmother's coin album and this was among other errors on the first sleeve, top row. It's a 1956 Quarter with no Mint mark but as you can see the Reverse looks like something else was struck onto it between 8 and 4 O'Clock. The obverse is plain to see with the I, B E and R looking as if it were wiped away but i'm sure there is a reason why it looks like that.

    Can anyone share their expertise please? My novice opinion, or what i see: If you turn the Reverse face on it's side to the left I see '5' and '4' just underneath that , with the 4 being slightly clipped by the edge of the coin. I just find that weird considering this is a '56? I can't get he greatest shots because of the cellophane but if you would like more let me know.

    The flattening you see on the obverse is due to someone putting another object like a coin on the reverse and striking it with a hammer. Often referred to as PMD (Post Minting damage) Welcome to CT

    Sorry, but everything you see is damage. Not an error of any kind. It's still worth silver melt value.
