    Hello everyone, It's been a while but I'm still liking it, anyway I just would
    like the correct label for this error. I have been learning but I need more
    explanation please. It's a good looking coin and I hope the photos prove worthy,
    Thank you

    Well I have never seen such damage on a Bicentennial quarter like this on such a clean coin, the gouge top of the E is deep , is this a lamination error how did it happen ?

    It also weighs 5.5g from the 5.67 that it says it should be, so was what's missing rubbed out or fell out or wasn't there from the start

    You will get better responses if you research your coin at error, or You should be able to find the classification or category of the error. In your post include what you see that makes you think it is an error and what you found out in your research. Coin Talk helps people who help themselves.

    Error is a good website but it's hard to navigate. So much info.

    The other 2 are more for varieties.

    Just asking here in CoinTalk is actually the best thing to do. Most issues newbies ask is just due to circulation wear, alterations and miscellaneous damage. I've been giving responses for almost 10 years now ;)

    My saying is.. Not everyone that looks weird, strange or different is automatically a mint error.

    From the pictures, it appears that there is a weak strike in the area of the drum. That plus some normal circulation damage probably explains what you are seeing.

    I was purposely not specific because the OP did not state his concern. Error ref should be studied before the roll is unwrapped. The overlays at mad die would have been my suggestion for this one. They do not have an overlay for the '76 reverse but one can see that the area in question is opposite the deepest area of the obverse. My point is do some study, then some research, then post your questions and concerns.

    How would you know? He did not specify anything. See his post #14.

    That's a good point but they could just come here to CoinTalk and ask :hilarious:

    It would take a very long time to understand the difference between a true error and damage. A lot of the error or variety websites don't really get into damaged coins.

    You are not stupid. I can account for a lot of questions I have asked. Coins are very detailed and studied deeply and sometimes it can all resemble. If that makes sense.

    The drum is due to a slightly weak strike. Notice the area on the obverse opposite the drum is Washington's head. A lot of metal has to move around during striking to fill the head and the higher relief around the drum. If the mint backs off a little on striking pressure to save some die life, this area Will be weak.

    It doesn't add any value.
