Post mint damage.
Zackly! ~ Chris
We did! I just hope that we hear from him after PCGS tells him he's nuts and so are his respected dealers. ~ Chris
Had this coin been struck a number of times, what are the odds that the original portrait would still be perfectly framed in the center and untouched?
If you can recreate a damaged coin at home as in this case, what is to stop
people from creating "mint errors"?
The large "R" from LIBERTY is reversed which happens when you press another coin into this one.
Very cute kids. I'm glad you included that photo as it's nice to see children smiling in todays world. Thanks.
Your Quarter is Not a mint error of any kind!
Be nice?.. Have a nice day!

Where is your Cat?
Only my daughter owns a cat. His name is Theolonious
Terrific! At least you daughter has her priorities straight. Does she collect coins too?
Thank you, they are precious!
I may not like your post but I have every intention of posting the results pro or con!
I guess you will never learn then.
My momma always said, "Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get."
I see that you have only been here on CT for 10 days. Not really enough yet to get your feet wet. Most coin dealers do not specialize in error coins and some only keep a few around that are easy to identify. Many here have collected errors for decades, including myself. Even I nor they have all the answers. But the above answers are all correct. The biggest clue as to yours being or not being an error was stated above, backward lettering. Therefore yours cannot be a genuine error as that is now how the coin is struck. We are trying to save you a lot of money by not sending to a TPG just to come back as not an error. Everyone wants to find a major error but they are few and far between found in the wild. Before you send it out contact the real specialist @Fred Weinberg who has 50 years invested in this type of coin/s. @paddyman98 has 35 years invested in this also.
Chris can be blunt but believe that he is honest.
