    The beak on the eagle is cut short and has a line under it.

    looks like machine doubling, not double die. the length of the beak appears normal. compared to others that year. and wear on the coin.

    The beak is normal - there -might- be a very
    very small 'hit' or contact mark there, but it's nothing,
    and not an error.

    You're looking too closely and finding normal things that
    occur to coins when they are struck, or have contact marks
    from circulation.

    I don't mean to discourage you but finding a minor anomaly
    on a coin is normal - it's a manufacturing process that produces
    millions of coins on a daily basis - and they don't always look
    exactly the same - especially after dies strike hundreds of
    thousands of coins.

    ....and many here are looking with stereoscopes, instead of
    10-15 power magnifying glasses - they're simply looking too
    closely, and under high power, you see all sorts of things that
    don't look 'right' - but are normal strikes from dies that produce
    metal objects at 65-85 tons of pressure EACH time they strike a

    It's a normal Quarter that has been circulated. It also may have been a weak strike in that area. Nothing unusual about it.
