    Hi guys,

    I have this 1996 P Washington Quarter with a spitting eagle error on the reverse and a die crack on the lower right side of the rim running thru the "O" in dollar. Is this considered a die clash? I would also like to know how often are spitting eagle errors found on quarters?

    Nice Die Crack.
    Clashes aren't rare.. I've seen plenty of them.

    The real 'spitting Eagle' is a die crack -
    your coin is the result of a die clash in that area.

    Oh.. I didn't know there was a difference.

    What would the Spitting Horse be considered?

    I agree with paddyman, die crack. I also noticed the coin looks to have been gold plated at one time. Both obverse and reverse, look closely, I may be wrong. Just my opinion.

    As Fred mentioned, that's a clash coming off of the Eagles beak ...

    Guess you could call it the Drooling eagles. Spit goes further. Jim

    Those are the easier ones to spot .
    There's some between the pigtail, and his neck .

    Here's a image of where I'm talking about .

    Sorry to jump onto this post but I am brand new and I don’t see the option for posting new - and I haven’t gotten any confirmation emails. I do have a question though - and the pics here are what I am finding in my coins. I am seeing a lot of dates, numbers, monograms on every coin I check. Many seem “hidden” or are so light it is hard to see. Others stand out. Are coins recycled? From the old ones?What are the images I am seeing in the coins? Definitely not dirt or nicks as I can see them in all of the coins posted on this site as well. Like I said, brand new to all of this and driving myself crazy trying to figure out what images I am seeing. For an example, I have a 1983 D quarter where I am certain I am seeing images of small flowers, especially around the edge. And a lot of numbers, all sizes. While looking up the coin online, someone had posted theirs as well - and it had the EXACT same monograms/errors or whatever you want to call them. Can someone explain this to me? Thank you so much!

    Are you looking at these under magnification?

    Eagles bed kid not a die crack which is what causes the spitting. You have a die clash there and a decent die crack at 5 o’clock so congratulations. Looks like a couple of clashes on the obverse as well.

    no. I’ve just noticed them on mine and now can spot them on others.

    I did edit the colors just to so the things I’m already seeing pop more on the photo. One is circled to show where I am seeing this to reference the other. Maybe this is something totally common and I’m over here driving myself nuts. Thanks

    Hmm. I think I found some more, even. What do you think of these?
