i was going through a few coins and came across this interesting quarter. i has a few grease stays throughout the coin making some very interesting marks. the one that really pops out at me is the "I" in IN GOD WE TRUST is "missing" and appears invisible when looking at it. also in the word LIBERTY the T seems smudged and reaching from the R to the Y and it looks like it is covering the hole in the R. lastly on the reverse the word UNITED looks as if the I and part of the T have vanished and the rest of the word has also become dulled compared to the others. there are plenty of coins that are in circulation that can be just as fascinating as one like this.
Cool coin. Did you check it out in the Cherry Pickers Guide?? Never know.
this coin has been through & seen some action , hasn't it - cool how each one tells a different story - these roughed up versions are more interesting

They didn't exactly take care minting quarters that year, did they? Interesting.
the date of the coin is 1985. i forgot to say it in the blog
It is always fun to look for and find things like this. This one is interesting that it is in so many place, obverse and reverse. Thanks for sharing with photos.
