    First of all before any confusion I have inspected this very well and tried to take as good of pictures as I can and circled the two of many errors on this coin. There are several die cracks on this quarter. One is on the left lower side between the arrows and the Eagles feet and the other one is right through and over the top of the UN in United. this is in a 1984 P Quarter which the p is filled in and heavily stamped. Any suggestions on what something like this would go for? Thank you in advance and sorry about so many pictures I just wanted everyone to get a good look. Thank you and have a great day happy Hunting 20200122_060746.png 20200122_060838.png 20200122_061420.png 20200122_061143.png 20200122_061232.png 20200122_061609.jpg 20200122_061044.jpg

    The quarter looks heavily circulated. It is a spender

    Your images are very blurry, but that is to be expected when someone tries to use a loupe to take close-ups. The mark through "UN" looks like PMD.

    Regardless, die cracks are so common, I don't know why some people think they are considered Mint errors. Spend it! ~ Chris

    Oldhoopster It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    The mark through the UN and wing looks like a minor die crack. I Can't tell about the other area, but it might be a small crack or more likely a die scratch. Technically they are errors, but are minor. They’re interesting to find, but don’t add any additional value. To answer your question, it’s worth 25 cents.

    If you are hoping to get rich looking for errors, you’re better off buying lottery tickets. Even minor errors aren’t that common and it’s unusual to find something significant that would retail for $1. Keep that in mind if you’re watching the “get rich from pocket change” videos. The You tube hacks never tell you the whole story, they just want your clicks.

    If you want to learn about coin collecting and errors, you're in the right place.

    Technically, a die crack is not an error, since it would be on all coins struck after that point.
    It should be termed a die state or die variety
