    That's one severely damaged quarter. I can't say for sure what happened to it, possibly someone cleaned it up with a wire wheel. One thing for sure though, it certainly didn't leave the mint that way.

    Could be a dug coin that was harshly cleaned with something that moved the metal

    if you disagree, then please explain how this could happen in the minting process. The initial pictures were fine, and I don't see anything different in the new ones. If by send you mean to send it to PCGS, that is your call. It's a fair amount of money to have it done, so be sure you don't mind losing the money. Good luck though, let us know how it turns out.

    Sorry to say, but everyone who has responded is correct. This is a damaged quarter worth face value. Once again I will recommend varietyvista website which will show you any errors and varieties known for the date. But in this case, it’s just a badly handled and damaged quarter: wish there was better news for you!

    Do yourself a favor and put away the scope. If you look microscopically at any coin you'll see all sorts of anomalies, both real and imagined.

    Your coin is badly damaged. If you need to spend $50 or $60 to be told that by PCGS then by all means go ahead.

    Unless you can explain how that happened during the striking of the coin,
    then it is damage.

    I can tell you that if I'm the only one that see what I see, well not true mike showed me and said if they don't see that then take there advise with a grain of salt. that's why he only deals face to face. Thought he was old and didn't get computers well like me, But realized in my time on here I understand him. Want to say a few other thing but need time and to clear it with the boss. SO Someone sent me and I thought I was seeing and grasping a pic of doubling. A good example. why, Cause I see it. Mike sees and help me as the pic did. As far as the other mess on the coin Me or Mike cant tell you, but are 95% sure not from being cleaned, so with that said Its a 1973 quarter been in circulation does or is there some damage on it I'm sure. Not what was disputing I asking or expected to get reply on what I see. Its hard to see when coin is not in front of you with your scope I'm assuming cause we know what we are seeing. Loading the coin up and going to see my bud. > @Greenstang said:

    Yes explain is why going to see buddy. Older and wiser and deals with no bulls>>>>. For Now this coin is double or what ever the terms is like the famous penny and the other Thing that makes it hard see is what needs to be explain I can even see in my pics I have up. I can dame sure see it in my scope, but like I said I have the coin in front of me. > @JBK said:

    Please, for the love of God, look online at photos of actual doubled die coins to see what they look like. Yours is nothing but severe post-minting damage.

    True. But took Greenstang advise. Need to explain. So If we are in the ball park on the explanations of the coin after my pow wow with my buddy. Feel good about it.

    Before you send it to a TPG company, run the numbers and see if it is worth the cost to prove your point. You have to include shipping to and from and then the TPG cost to have them look at it. You may be right and then maybe it is just a parking lot find. Good luck and hope you are happy with your final decision. Personally, I would just put it in a 2x2 and start your own error collection. :) Also a TPG will send it as a DETAILS coin.
