    1976-S Bicentennial Quarter, PR67 Red
    Struck Over a Struck Cent
    Important Off-Metal Error

    1976-S Bicentennial Quarter -- Overstruck on a Struck Cent, Double Denomination -- PR67 Red NGC. The Bicentennial quarter was the sole design change to the Washington quarter between its 1932 introduction and the 1999 advent of the state quarter series. It was struck in 1975 and 1976, though all examples bear 1976 dates. As a single-year type, off-metal specimens are very rare. In fact, a search of our online archives, which date to 1993, failed to find another Heritage auction appearance of an off-metal Bicentennial quarter. This mint error was struck aligned with the collar die at 6 o'clock. The types are complete, though Washington's hair is mostly indistinct. QUARTER DOLLAR is partial and blurry. LIBERTY is essentially absent. The San Francisco mintmark appears as a narrow triangle. The quarter date is bold. The width is greater than the height, which makes the coin somewhat oval. The cent undertype is visible as columns of the Lincoln Memorial on Washington's shoulder and forehead, and ONE CENT is faintly present on the left obverse border of the quarter.
