Hello everyone, I'm thinking this could possibly be eight tail feathers, I could be wrong though. What would be your thoughts. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

A little manual retouching on the reverse die. Quite common on proof Washington quarters.

If you look in the book

United States Proof Coins 1936-1942


Roger W. Burdette

You'll find lots of photos of retouching on all denominations of proof coins. Processes were similar from 1950-1964, too.

(Or -- maybe they fell off a nearby 1878 8TF silver dollar...?)
