Comments

Some of the Arizona quarters struck at the Philadelphia mint have a die crack towards the bottom of the Saguaro cactus on the reverse giving the appearance of an "extra cactus leaf".  The die crack is horizontal across the cactus trunk causing the "extra cactus leaf" to cover the engraver's initials.
