2021-P Washington Crossing the Delaware Quarter Error

    In checking numerous rolls of uncirculated 2021-P Washington Crossing the Delaware quarters, I found some coins that reflect what appear to be errors. The first photo is representative of those coins.

    The first photo contrasts with the second photo of a coin that shows Washington's uniform in much greater detail - complete with buttons and clearly defined lines for the sleeve and cape. S20220403_025.jpg S20220403_027.jpg

    To date I have not been able to find any comments regarding coins similar to those shown in the first photo. If anyone is aware of the identification of this error, I would appreciate that information. Thank you!

    Thats not an error just weakly struck, or a worn-out die.

    As stated above it looks like a weak strike. However, it is difficult to judge as you have taken 2 images each with a different focus, and different concentration of light on that part of the coin . The bottom left quarter of the first image is blurred.

    Thank you very much for the comments. Being a novice regarding precise meanings of terms such as "weak streak," "worn-out die," and/or "error," I do not understand when or ever a "weak streak" or "worn-out die" constitutes an "error."

    You need to know that the working dies strike thousands and thousands of coins, so through wear, the dies produce less defined details. So your coin was struck with a worn die, IMHO.

    A weak strike or worn out strike will not make for an error. This is just a maintenance issue and/or a quality control problem.

    Not an error. The coin in the top phot was minted from a die that was worn and the second photo has a coin that was minted with a new, strong die that still has lots of li be left in it.

    "Mint mark" to me is the "P" designating the Philadelphia mint. Please let me know whether your question pertains to particular scratches or other imperfections. THANK YOU!

    Wanted to be sure both were P mint mark! Often there is a difference between the Philly strike and the Denver strike, with the Denver strike being much stronger IMO! If they are both P mint mark, then I agree with a weak strike theory!

    OP's opening paragraph says rolls of P quarters so we have to assume it is correct and not customer rolled with various MM inside

    [​IMG] I came across this one today. It kind of looks like an oar fell in the water and was floating. Thoughts from the group?

    Hey Josh I saw that your other photo, (different thread) Didn't post.
    The best way to get answers is to start a new thread. What you have is displaced metal though. That is a heavy bag mark from the reeded edge of another quarter. Neat looking but it is a common mark found on Washington quarters.
