994 and 1998 quarter Double Dies?

4 posts in this topic

Hi all ! I finally made it back after a year...I was just wondering if anyone knows of either a 1994 or 1998 quarter that seems to have been doubled in one or more places. I rec. a roll from a bank the other day and was actually looking for the elusive Wisconsin when I happened upon several 1994 and 1998 quarters that have doubling on the Motto (extreme) more so than the pics of the 1934 . Each letter is doubled clearly and seperately. The 1998 ones were too but not as clear and totally separate. Also on one of the 1994's the 4 is doubled as well as Liberty. I found about three 94's and two 98's like this as well as some with absolutely no doubling whatsoever. Any help would be appreciated . I checked the Coneca site and cannot find anything.

me either and rather than wasting the members time with inferior pictures like I dd along time ago I thought I would try to describe it as most perceived errors are explainable but this excited me. The motto is doubled as much as the 1955 penny doubling - very noticable.

Are these from BU rolls?

 

They were using the single squeeze method for making dies by '98 so true doubled dies should be pretty improbable. It seems likely that with the kind of spread you're talking about that it would be deteriorated die doubling. This is caused by the flow of metal over successive strikes etching a secondary image. These won't really be detached from the primary image but may appear to be without magnification. If this is the case the coins should all show extensive die erosion which will be roughness in the surface of the coins especially in the areas where metal movement is greatest. This will be around the portrait and the periphery lettering.
