Pulled from a roll this morning.
Immediately noticed the $ over his hat :smiley: and then the large die gouge over the D.

Are those curved marks from lazy harsh polishing?
Yes, all of it is raised.

Feedback please!

    Yes, heavy die polish to remove clash marks. That is a die gouge over the S. Pretty cool $ sign, reminiscent of the 1944-S Jefferson Silver War Nickel. I’ve never seen a bicentennial quarter like this.

    Now all you have to do is find a few more, give it a catchy name like the speared bison/eagle, and promote the heck out if of it as a variety.

    That $ should do it. ;)

    Nice die gouge error.

    Very cool to have it form a $ sign.
