Default Arizona State Quarter Error

As I was about to put some quarters in rolls I happened to notice that the designer's initials were obscured and I took a better look through my loope and discovered that there was an extra cactus leaf under the big cactus. It came down so far that it was partially obscuring the initials. Does this look like a mint error to you?

It's a die chip.

Extra claws, extra mountains, extra wings, extra leaves, extra flowers, extra clouds, extra men; the state series quarters have them all. As Mike pointed out, they are for the most part (99.99%) die chips / die breaks.
