    Just a 'hit' aka: contact mark, simply from being in circulation....

    Not an error.

    I bet the surface of the coin has other contact marks too.

    Common sense should tell you that it is just circulation damage.

    I beg to differ. Under a powerful magnifier the coin is consistent all over as well as in and around the D. I’d like to see if anybody else ends up finding this same year quarter with the same error.

    Oldhoopster It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    There is no doubt that it's a damaged coin. You can see some displaced metal on the upper left side. Nobody else will find one because isn't a mint variety. Sorry but it's damaged, as has been pointed out by some extremely knowledgeable numismatists

    I beg to differ with you.
    DEFDAM - Definitely Damaged :yack:

    Not a mint error of any kind. There is no reason for the Mint to change the letter D to a U.

    You won't find anything. You can clearly see that the D has been scrapped away. It's damaged.

    First, welcome to the neighborhood, JR!

    As others have stated, it is not an error. It is simply damage, and as such, is only worth face value. ~ Chris

    How can it damnage when it's consistent in damaged area. Find it hard to believe it is worn or damaged die doubl die. Right

    You are new to CT, and from your lack of understanding of the minting process, you must be new to numismatics as well. Give it a few years! ~ Chris

    Looks like someone took that coin out of my bum cup and sandpapered that D away at the top..

    Give me my coin back!

    No two damaged coins are going to be absolutely exactly alike.
