    I got this quarter in my change today. Initially I noticed how nice of shape it’s in. When I get these type of coins in my change I figure someone put them aside for decades and wonder why.

    Closer inspection I notice a doubling in the “In God We Trust”. Perhaps this is the reason someone had taken this quarter out of circulation apparently decades ago.

    So… is this machine doubling or something else?

    It's fun to snag an old specimen in fine condition. The doubling is MD, unfortunately. Normally I see the MD spreads towards the rim, but not always and not in this case. Given the sharpness of the devices, this may have been an earlier strike from the die. Perhaps some grease around IN and T to flatten those devices.

    It's the most profound example of MD I've come across on a coin to date.

    That is pretty profound. But you can see how the letters are foreshortened for the smears, the smears are just those parts of the letters that are flattened due to the strike.
