2005 Minnesota Land of 10,000 lakes

I recently got some good advice out here and I tend to put it to use but when I was looking at this coin I couldn't believe all the varieties errors and so on I couldn't make heads or tails of it but the tree or trees in question are the same ones with the double die. Also the 1st tree next to the state. It looks like Giant die chips or was it smashed down by environment? to the right of the fourth tree from the state ,up above, left hand side seen similar pictures on wexler like I said there are so many I can't distinguish this is another variety I also read somewhere there was doubling in the engine of the boat there are other ones but I can't remember I think I'm overloaded in studying.lol. Help would you be appreciated. I have another one I have to make a separate post on. Ty

    "Giant die chips or was it smashed down by environment?"

    This is part of the problem searching circulated examples, it can be hard to tell the difference.

    As you have noticed the are many extra trees, many of them would be very hard to see on circulated examples.
    If you are going to chase extra trees you would be best off looking through uncirculated rolls.
    A few of the stronger varieties will bring a premium but the minor ones are of little interest because there are soo many of them.
    The 2015 P Homestead quarter has a lot of DDR's also and only the strongest ones are of interest to most collectors.

    May be 003 or 008. Difficult to discern by a photo. With over 100 not worth much, nevertheless fun to find.

    I'll go with 291 fifth. You're right looking too hard already started weeding through most. The reason why I started on quarters I got a ice machine that spits out quarters and presidential dollars sometimes SBA Saskatchewan now they're spitting out quarters so I take advantage of that and the laundromat down the block so I guess it'll be quarters for a while learning ever so slowing

    @Menza.... The minor errors (such as these quarters and some other moderns) are fun to find, but usually not of significant value to collectors. True, some like to see if they can assemble them all, and it is usually a cheap set as well. You can get eye strain looking for these minor ones, as you may have noticed. Cheers, RickO
