I wouldn't complain about the coins condition unless you see some type of circulation and or cleaning.
probably as struck
Does it have a Reeded edge? If not then it could be a Broadstruck Quarter.
Cool looking quarter.
Hmmm, good question. I don't know. Let me check, stby....
Here you go @paddyman98. I pulled it out of my Dansco for you, not my butt.
I have some random anomaly holes fillers in the back. Both Off-Center or Broadstruck Quarter error are a tight fit in those holes.
There appears to be some very very slight/light reeding. 99% of the edge looks smooth.
Nice quarter! The year 1983 must have been big for off-center quarters. I seem to remember a similar post a few months ago with a 1983 quarter. Back in 1983 or 1984 I was visiting the small town bank where I had worked as a teenager. One of the officers was showing me around and visiting. As a teller we used to have a small cardboard "mutilated box" to toss unusable coins. One of them had five or six off-center 1983 P quarters. They were all from the same mint bag, although they each had some scuffing from the coin counting machine's rubber wheel. Each was 33-35% off center and all along the exact same axis. The bank officer gave them all to me. I still have three.
Really?? Sweet!! Can you post them here?
They are with some other coins in my bank vault. I'll see if I can get down there over the next few days and retrieve them to take some pictures.
Great! Would love to see them.
Here are two of them. One of them I must have placed in a safe place here at the house, and eventually I will run across it. The others I have given away down through the years. The first three images are one coin, the second three are the other coin. All the coins looked essentially alike.
WoW!! Sweet! Those are great! Thanks for posting.
