2008 P Alaska State quarter

Is this what they mean by extra claw you can see it clearly on the Bear's paw. Appears to be die chips between the e and a in great
On the obverse even though it's a little chewed up or a lot chewed up appears to be a die crack on the chin and side of his mouth also Small die chips on the wig. Opinions please

    Minor die chips are very common on these state quarters.

    Many Alaskans were disappointed in that design. Lots of states have bears.

    Good pictures, and yes, some die chips. No idea about extra claw(s).... No DDO there. Cheers, RickO
