2013-P Great Basin Quarter

Great Basin National Park is in Nevada and the coin debuted back in June. The park is known for being an oasis in the desert and contains several large peaks. It also has some very old trees that grew on rocks.



The reverse features a Bristlecone Pine tree and the rocky glacial moraine on which it grows. These trees can grow to be 4,000 years old because of the short growing season and lack of competition for resources.

You also may also notice some radial streaks on both sides. This was done during minting and has several causes like overpressure or grease or slight misalignment. Either way it does not add extra value. It also causes some doubling visible on the front especially around IN GOD WE TRUST. On the reverse it leaves some odd marks on the inner ring. Again none of these are true errors and will likely not bring any extra interest or value.

Here's the stats...
