1979 Qtr, HELP

#1 Unread post by olbare » Thu Mar 29, 2018 3:15 pm

I found this 79 qtr stuck in the end of a rubber mat. It looked like it had been there for a long time. I dont know what to think about it. Its looks like a DD and been stamped with differant quarters. There are stars, the only qtrs with stars are bicentenial qtrs, I think. The circle on it matches a qtr. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Paul knows his "stuff".
Definitely PMD. usually created by pressing another coin into this one (vise, hammer. etc.).

:confused: Not by me.
Just letting you know since you were asking about it, that bored people with time to kill will do odd things to coins.

I don't know how you can even remotely perceive that his comment was an accusation, he told you what can cause this and nothing more can be read into his comment.

Thanks Daniel but I've come to realize that comments online can be perceived in ways they were not intended. (I've made that mistake myself.) I'm definitely not perfect and I didn't take his comment personally because I assumed he misunderstood. Unfortunately with the written word there is no way to hear any inflection or pause of the voice that might clear up a misunderstanding before it happens.
That is why I tried to be more careful in my reply so it wouldn't be taken the wrong way. Hope he comes back with more posts, questions and images. The more here, the merrier.
