My name is Dori.
I am new to coin collecting and was wondering if my 2016 D Kentucky state quarter is a triple die, machine doubling or mechanical error. And if none of the above, what would have caused it to appear like this.

Seems like a double die
If you have any United States, Taiwan, Chinese republic, Japanese (pre WWII) coins to exchange please let me know! I have lots of coins in my collection and only a small portion is on numista.

I don't think it triple or double die ,its simply a normal coin.American coins are heavily punched ,so it appear little 3d in picture.

You need to send it to one of the certifying companies. Their opinion will be the final word in this issue. I can't imagine that the value would be that much as a "raw" coin. Unfortunately! :(

I dont see the notching on the corners of the letters/numbers that would indicate a doubled die.

I see a double die, except for the last picture:



That indeed looks like a triple die (and I don't drink).
Double dies are fairly common errors with very little (if any) premium in most cases, so I certainly wouldn't send it to a certifying company and pay 40 - 50 dollars to put it in a plastic case. But of course, that's only my opinion.

Thanks for your opinion. But Why wouldn't it hold any value if it was doubled. I mean I know that there's certain years or coins that hold a much higher value but I haven't seen anything on this coin.

DDOs and TDOs have value to error collectors, but machine doubling happens much more often, thus it has no additional value. If you want a second opinion, I suggest you post your picture here:
