2001 Ky Quarter

#1 Unread post by BRYFLY »

I put the other coins in as a reference. The quarter has no reeding, smaller than a quarter, wider than a nickle. Ive looked for any quarter like this and cant find an example. Coukd anyone on here help. Thanks!

Is it very worn?

If not, you likely found a Broadstrike error . . .

This is not a Broadstrike in any way, shape or form

Please look up the term "Spooned"

I agree with Paul - no way its a broadstrike. You can also see its a bit thicker than the other quarters when stacked. Its likely just a "spooned coin" as Paul said.

Thank you for your reply, never heard of spooning and I wouldn't put something altered in any way on here that I didn't know had been altered. Thank you, I'll still hold on to it because I think it's cool!

A broad struck coin is just that, broadly struck "looking" and struck without the retention of the collar die which holds the shape of the coin when the hammer die exerts tons of pressure on the planchet. So a coin that is broad struck will be more spread out.
