full pictures of both sides.
IN GOD WE TRUST is Die Deterioration doubling.
Worthless doubling with circulation damage.
yes, worthless. Just a 1998 quarter. I’m trying to find a coin with doubled lettering. I’ve got the md down! Lol.
The initial item (2022) above may be a strike through specimen. It is important to show the full obverse/reverse of specimens you like feedback on (e.g., when asking about RPMs, DDOs/DDRs) and descriptors like the anomaly you see is incuse or in relief since sometimes it is difficult to tell from photos (you have the benefit of having it in hand and 3 dimensional viewing). More information usually helps us dial in faster for you.
Folks here are always available to discuss and analyze specimens. We enjoy seeing the finds other members come across; occasional gems pop up here at CT.
Kevin, I’ll add full images later. As for additional info on the crack or line on the 2022 quarter, the line is raised. I took the tip of a sharp pencil and pulled it over the line. I could see the tip rise as it was pulled over the line. The graphite fell on both sides. I saw something like this before and the person was calling it a brush wire mark? If it was pmd, a scratch, most of the graphite would fill the scratched out area. Jmho.
if it was a piece of something that shouldn’t be part of the process, it may never resurface. If this is scratched, why would it look filled in and raised? At the very end of the line, it does look like a possible deep scratch or gouged out area?
the arrows point to what I believe is a crack or wire. The mark at the bottom looks like a bag mark, ding, or scratch? The circled area is the only spot where the quarter is showing depth or depth.
The area in question on his neck looks like it took a hit. The long raised line from the B in LIBERTY to just shy of the hit on his neck is a die crack. No wire was involved.
When a die develops a crack metal flows into that crack on the die when the coin is struck. This leaves a raised line on the coin.
kevin, the nature of a scratch is ,I believe, a sharp object pulled across a surface. A scratch would run across all high points and force metal to either side like a berm, which is not the case here. The berm you mention is possibly shadowing on either side of the raised line. If this was a scratch, wouldn’t it appear across all of the high ridge points or peaks and not so much in lower valleys. I do not see a scratch mark on all of the high points but there is a line in the lower valleys? How is this even possible? I’m not sure this is even a die crack. I’m leaning towards foreign material on planchet, if possible. Tks
Kevin, here is an example of what could be a scratch. Marks on a 2017 Rogers Clark
Hi Dan - this 2017 looks like a struck through wire with a contact mark under the O. The image is cropped just as the left end approaches the rim. Perhaps it's a scratch/gouge that enters the rim.
On the 2022, it looks like it enters the rim. If it were struck through wire, it would be incuse in the field and in lower areas of the design. If it is a crack, it would be raised and generally, ragged and irregular.
With it in hand, are you seeing one or the other? Both but in different areas as noted in your labeled image?
Separate names with a comma.
