    I found a 1982 d washington quarter with what looks to me like a jefferson nickel head stamped over washingtons head. Even if not jefferson its definitely something. Can anyone give me any info on what this error could possibly be.

    Looks like adhesive on the coin to me.

    Are you Danielle's freind?

    There is no possible way a Quarter can be struck by a Nickel Die during the minting proccess. The Quarter would have to fit into the Nickel chamber to be held but it is bigger so it won't fit. Also you would see signs of the nickel being struck on the other side which you don't.

    I agree with adhesive which took a similar form of Jefferson. It's called Paredolia.

    Not a mint error of any kind.

    BTW.. I'm not childish nor jealous of your quarter in any way.

    I think it is glue, too! Have you tried using acetone to see if it will dissolve? ~ Chris

    Oldhoopster It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    Glue, epoxy, or some type of resin. The buy led are the giveaway. As you learn more about the minting process and gain experience after looking multitudes of coins, you'll understand that your coin could not have left the mint like that.

    It's peeling off. You can see it. If it's not glue or adhesive of some type then it's still a damaged coin.

    Those that said it was glue has it right IMO. It is either glue or something else dried up on it.

    Not a chance it left the mint looking like this. Not possible.
    Don't believe it, send the coin in to the services and pay to see if they agree with you.
    I feel it's just a damaged coin.

    I think what everyone is saying is from what we can see its either glue, resin/epoxy, or damage to the coin. The only way any of us would think otherwise is if we could see evidence to the contrary or a third party grader designation. If we could see the actual coin we might think otherwise but the bubbles on the head and overall shape look like glue or damage to us.

    If this is metal it may be solder . People do all kinds of things to coins. I believe it would be impossible for anything to happen to a coin die at the mint to make coins look like this one.
