What get me is I live in Michigan and we don't get many Denver mint coins in the wild .
How long before they pop up on the Fee Bay??
The wife gets change at the laundry and the car wash....I scan every quarter before it is spent...drives her nuts!!!! HAHAHA...good luck
Let us know if you find any ...
Here's the thread I posted when I got the quarters....
I think what's going on is an affect of lighting. These devices are so sharply stuck the the light is reflecting off the top surface and the infinitly small side surface with the edge creating a dark line which creates an illusion of doubling. I took several pics and a video. In some of them it looks doubled, in others it doesn't
Here is the top flower. Int he first image I used red arrows to point out what looks like doubling and yellow arrows to pointing out the dark line that I think is the right angle edge of the device.
If the light angle is shifted the doubling seems to "dissipate" or change or go away
Perspective 2 - In this image the perspective and angle of the pic an lighting is so drastic that I highlighted the edge of the flower withe yellow and circled it. If you look at the black arrows here they are pointing to what i call the right angle edge of the device that seems to show up as a dark line which seemingly separates the two lines of light that seem to give the illusion of doubling.
Here is the lower leaf in the first pic it seems to look like its doubled.
But in this pic after shifting the scope and light the doubling seems to be gone
All in all I think its just the sharp strike on these coins that catches light in places as you look at it and appears to be a doubled edge. Even in the incused numbers in the bottom pic if you stare at it long enough you'd swear there's doubling...again light being caught in the edges and corners.
I could be way off here, I'm green to spotting this stuff but it doesn't seem to be a doubled die or machine doubling to me.
Here is some video of me scoping it out and moving the light and scope around.
I GOT A FEW WITH D's STAMPED IN THE MIDDLE NEXT THE ROAD GOING INTO TUNNEL
sounds like a clash, or dropped letter error . Take some images, so we can see it ..
