I would advise to read up and learn about the minting process for coins properly.Either way its a damaged coin but still a nice 25 cents.Like Paddy mentioned above it looks like a strike from a shovel.
I thought it was to long and wide to be from a edge hit. Besides being impacted from an ASE,it's a damaged coin nonetheless though.
Yes it is, damaged but from another coin. Probably in a bag after it left the mint.
Hehe.. I asked because the person has dirt underneath their fingernails
Well, that's not quite true. I think @Collecting Nut meant to say, the coins are not hot when they come out of the stamping press. The planchets are heated to soften them prior to being minted and your coin shows the damage after the coin was minted.
Welcome to CT BTW.
You got it.
@KBBPLL gives multiple scenarios as to how this may happen.
and like I said in another thread why do some error coins also have the appearance of damaged coins!!!!.
@Iso808 post a couple more pictures from different angles. Reverse photo also might help. Check the edge for anything unusual.
I’m guessing your right. Someone on eBay might go nuts for one of them kinds. Just explain what it is I guess. I like it. Really different if not done intentionally
Yeah clean them nail was my first thought
What’s an ASE ?
