    Found this 1972 quarter in a customer roll yesterday and not positive on the mint mark. I think i see a S with a die chip in the middle. But in the 2years roll hunting iv never come across a S quarter. If so wow it would b my 1st. Well tell me what you see or think yoy see...thanks for stopping by and Happy Hunting.

    Looks like it is an Impaired Proof coin with a die chip in the mintmark.
    1979 had 2 types of mintmarks. SBA's also had this 2 type mintmark.
    The Red Book make a note of it.

    My guess is that its a grease filled die and that its a D since its more square and not rounded looking

    you should be reading it for 5-10 minutes every night learning stuff until you finish it, then start over again. :)

    Looks like an S MM with a chip on it. Kind of a neat find.

    At first I am not seeing a proof. The rims are wide and the reverse is nice,
    but it appears to be a business strike.
    If the mm is a blob S then it is an impaired proof.
    The enlargement looks a lot more like the blob S than a D that took a hit.

    Looks like a damaged mintmark to me.

    After 41 years it could be almost anything, like a B mintmark for Boston. I think not.
