3 potential strike throughs for "the experts" to review...

Always willing to put myself out there...

All 3 of these are from roll searching during the last month or so.

  1. 2018 D Pictured Rocks quarter. There are fine wires embedded as well as a very hard plastic or ceramic type substance. To me it looks reminiscent of light bulb bits.

  2. 1976 D BIcentennial quarter. Many embedded fine strands of wire, fine plastic white threads, some wire with what looks like melted glass is attached to it, melted glass or maybe plastic. Look at Washington's eye area. Some of this debris is on the obverse but most of it is on the reverse.

  3. 2006 D Sacagawea dollar. At first I thought it was just paint or tape...but it seems to be level with the surface of the metal. It appears to be mostly level with the surface of the metal. It got my attention...

    I would give them all an acetone bath before posting.

    This one looks like struck thru grease. I've seen a lot of them. Apparently very common on these things.

    Looks like most are PMD. Clean them up with acetone, then see what remains. Cheers, RickO
