Unless you can find a marker on both that would link them to the same die, the fact that they are part of a progression is only speculation. What is that mark along the rim to the right of the mintmark on the second photo? ~ Chris
Is Mike Diamond still a member here?
The big one is on there but the small one isn’t.
@mikediamond let’s see if he is still around
@paddyman98 would the first be considered a finned rim, instead of a cud because it hadn't enveloped fully?
As I look at both Quarters they also seem like slightly Misaligned Die strikes. The side in question would cause some finning.
These aren’t finned. The larger one is listed on cuds-on-coins as
CU-25c-2018P-01(CI) Rim Cud
The angle of strike would surely cause this collar to break. Until further evidence
. I would call them note worthy
. @furryfrog02 can you find any other die markers? There is a finned rim that extends in the same direction towards 6 that is enveloped by your second example.
. Can you confirm that they are the same dies?
The one they show also looks Misaligned to me.
If it is on the die, then it would have to show up on the coin with the smaller cud, but it doesn't. This makes me think that the cuds are on two separate dies. ~ Chris
Since it is on the larger cud and not the smaller one, I was thinking it perhaps happened as the die broke further. Totally just a guess though.
Agree, two different dies..not a single die state progression.
It is also possible that the two coins were struck from different dies. A close check of other markers on the coins, particularly those which show up on both coins in the same location on the obverse , could resolve the issue. I haven’t checked the ‘cud site’, but that could give clues.
Looking at the example on the website, it seems to have the same marks to the right of the mintmark:
Separate names with a comma.
