    The question is... What error or issue do you have with the coin?
    Also, please show the Obverse of coin. Thanks!!

    The obverse is attached I thought, so I hope this works. Look at under the wing, I do not think it is a strike thru, or any kind of doubling 1965a.jpg 1965b.jpg

    If you are referring to the crook of the left wing (as you look at the reverse),
    then I would hazard a guess it is a large die chip, modernly known nowadays as an Interior Die Break…IDB. The quarter is a ‘65, the first year of release of clad coinage and has fairly moderate wear. IDB’s do not have much of an added premium even in better condition coins…imo…Spark

    Are you referring to this?

    It looks to be a Die Clash of Washington's nose.

    Cool but nothing major.

    I thought Interior Die Breaks are very rare?

    There is machine doubling to the left of "QUA" in "QUARTER".

    No.

    I believe it's just a simple die clash as I stated.

    The coin look fake to me. Have you weighed it, is it magnetic?
    Mushy details, reverse lettering is at the edge, eagle breast looks too pronounced.
    Reverse edge has lip at 10 & 2 o'clock positions, looks very suspect.

    IDB are very common.

    Ed, I agree with the clash. The IDB looks to be riding high on the wing so it may have started with the clash. A better close-up would help but probably a moot point…imo…Spark

    "What is this called?"
    Environmentally damaged (color of coin) and heavily circulated quarter.

    If the perimeter is smooth, I would suspect a dryer coin. Nothing scarce. Jim

    I have no idea how to post a new thread but I have a very weird mint mark on an 1878-s Morgan dollar. Lots of pictures taken with microscope for coins. No idea how to upload them?
