    I'd rather believe it is an alteration. Hope I'm wrong.

    I studied it as thorough as I could and knowing these coins could be altered this one showed no sign as far as I can tell by my limited knowledge. Both sides have equal and consistent flatness as well as the outer edge is extremely smooth no ridges as well as having an equal chamfer towards the outside edge on both sides.

    I strongly believe it's PMD .

    Good day, Thomas!

    You found it in a roll of quarters? What kind of roll of quarters? An unopened Georgia State Quarters roll of quarters or a roll of quarters that was obviously previously opened - with a wide range of years?

    I'm probably wrong . . . I frequently am wrong . . . but I fail to see how someone could figure out if it's a Mint error or post-Mint damage from a picture - even a fabulous portfolio of stupendous pictures.

    If possible, could you provide a URL for the one you saw graded by NGC?

    Have a terrific day!

    It was a standard bank roll of quarters all years I don't know if it is a strike adjustment error that is why I am asking so I can further expand my knowledge in order to know what to look for. Thanks for the input.

    The rims are not sanded /grinded off on the PCGS 1 so not at all the same.

    Yep. I'd have to agree with spirityoda. See, I was wrong. The rims should be there, right? The rims are created (upsetting mill?) before getting smacked hard by the dies. Your coin has no rims. I must ask, why would someone do that to a poor, helpless quarter?

    Not a Mint Error of any kind.

    "Dryer coin" in my opinion.

    I suspect the PCGS coin is not a die adjustment strike either. Looks more like a grease fill error.

    As several others have said, this quarter was sanded down outside the Mint. You can even see the copper core beginning to be exposed around the perimeter.

    This is my Die adjustment Strike quarter. Notice the rims as compared to yours. Unfortunately yours is damaged.
