Could this be an error on a 1981 quarter

3 posts in this topic

The “In” on I’m god we trust appears to be melted together. I was just wondering if this is a possible error, giving the coin possible value, or is it just some sort of damage done over the years of circulation? Thanks for any Input, & held a magnifying glass over the coin and took the picture that way, sorry if it’s not the best quality. Thanks!

It looks like it could have been a die break that caused the two letters to run together, and the "N" to be partially filled. It could also be some odd looking damage that mashed everything, giving it that appearance. Sorry I can't be more definite. Small die breaks are pretty common, and hub and die wear were problems in the 80s. Either way, it does not add any value to the coin.
