    I forgot I had this, but I had to look at it for a while before I remembered why I kept it. Does anyone know the population if known for this pump handle in the window? Regards.

    The approximate answer is - what is the average quarter die life? The mint says "The Mint uses penny dies to strike an average of one million pennies, but a dime die strikes only about 275,000 dimes." I would guess it's closer to the dime life since the composition is similar. So a couple hundred thousand seems reasonable. The unknown factor would be whether anyone noticed the defect and pulled the die early, which doesn't seem likely.

    NGC designates this one as VP-001 and their census shows 2,285 graded, so it appears to be popular and common.

    Nice research! I did find two for sale. One was sold for $69.99 graded MS66 and the other, $63.99 not graded. (2015 Homestead Quarter with Pump Handle reflection error! | eBay, Coins - National Park Quarters - 2015 Homestead Quarter - Doubled Pump Error - NGC 66 (avccoins.com)

    Thank you, I wasn't aware that there were that many graded, I'll keep mine raw. I do appreciate the info though. Thanks again.

    I thought that was interesting too. Excluding the W "Great American Coin Hunt" coins, it's by far the most-graded America the Beautiful quarter. https://www.ngccoin.com/census/united-states/quarters/103/
    Cool variety!
