Found this one this morning.

I don't know if my pictures are good enough and not sure how to get better pictures of it. I'm wondering if this is something new or it's been seen before and also what it does for the coin? Meaning is it collected and does it add value??

    It on both sides of this coin. It's lettering all the way around the rim.

    Is there something in particular you are asking about?

    To me this is a coin with post mint damage that likely saw time in a parking lot.

    It's lettering you can't see the stars in the first close up?

    That is Post Mint Damage (PMD) you see on the rim. It may appear to be letters, but that is called pareidolia ... "The perception of a recognizable image or meaningful pattern where none exists or is intended, as the perception of a face in the surface features of the moon."

    Thanks but its not. It's plain as say though the eye loop. It lettering you really don't see the 2 stars and the 5 in the first close up?

    You asked the question "Has this been seen before?". Everyone said yes, it has been seen before, it is Post Mint Damage. If you are unwilling to accept the answer, why ask the question?

    If the letters you’re talking about on the rim are incused, that’s just contact from another coin being pressed into it on the high rims – not an error as noted numerous times above

    If anything, that's the 2020p Salt River Bay quarter with a possible ddo?
    The squeezed doubling would appear on the Motto and "Liberty".
    Your's might have that "motto" doubling?
    The cat eye "0"?
    The fat lettering. Minor but very cool.
    I have one graded in my collection.
