Improperly Annealed?

CRHer700CRHer700 Posts: 401 ✭✭✭✭

I found this 1990-D quarter while CRHing, and thought that it looked kind of dark. I thought about some other posts that I saw about 2021s that were slabbed as improperly annealed ,and wondered if that was what I had and what it is worth if it is. Any help is appreciated. The one on the right is the one in question, the one on the left is for comparison.

    Doesn't look like it to me, what does the rim/edge look like.

    Looks like a metal detector find complete with scratches from the finder probing the ground with a screwdriver. Spend it.

    Worry is the interest you pay on a debt you may not owe.

    Here's a little info. You make the call. I'm no expert but the lines on the obverse may be saying something. Most of the ones I found have these lines. Error.ref says the lines are possibly from over annealing revealing the grain of the strip. These may be roller lines or roller lines may be annealing lines. I don't know for sure. Take these pictures into consideration and judge for yourself. It's not easy to tell on circulated coins

    The lines are what made me think of this. Even is it is not improperly annealed, what would a similar specimen realise price wise?

    Not much. Maybe a few dollars. Check eBay sold listings for more accurate pricing
