Double Broadstruck Bicentennial Quarter?
1 1

9 posts in this topic

I won a ebay 30 coin lot of off center bicentennial quarters and half dollars for 45 bucks about 15 years ago. This particular coin still has the grease on it from the mint but it looks double broadstruck. What's your take on it? And should I clean the grease off it??

Is that anything like “double secret probation” from Animal House?

It’s a nice broadstrike, but I’m not sure what makes it double.

I don't think cleaning it makes sense, but that's a heck of a nice error coin in my opinion!

I thinks it's double struck.

I can see no evidence of that. There is nothing there that can’t be explained by a broadstrike.

The L  and  T look doubled at the top on the obverse. Have not seen that on stretch strikes unless it was double struck.

All heck can, and usually does, break loose when the collar breaks. Question: Have you ever undertaken any formal education in numismatic matters, or are you just “winging it”?
