    I have this 1976 bicentennial quarter with what looks like a D mint Mark but, it's solid, filled in. Is this an Error or damage of some sort? Appreciate any info.

    Oldhoopster It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    It’s a die chip that filled the mm. While it is an error, filled D mintmarks were very common on coins in the 70s and add no value

    Appears to be PMD to me. The MM took a hit in its long life of circulation. Just a well wore quarter. NAV.

    Mint marks were blobby at best, back in dem days, but I think post mint (mortem) damage is involved.......

    I agree, I thought it was damage as well with a slight almost unnoticeable error. So I think all are right. A Combination of damage over error. It seems clear to me that the ever so slight error has been damaged. Regardless, eye candy without the sugar ;)

    A small die chip occurred inside the D mintmark. Now add in the wear and it looks filled in.
