Looks like a pressed coin issue. By the light I can see the stars are incuse. How? The raised devices have the light on the left. The incuse devices have the light on the right in this image. Also the star is pressed into the E on WE. Interesting image. Do you mind if I keep it?

Stars remind me of the Susan B, but not the Of A

I was thinking a Sacagawea dollar reverse, which has stars, but the "OF AMERICA" font is serif on those. Like Drsandman2 says, the stars match SBA, but it doesn't have that oblique, sans-serif "OF AMERICA" on it. It's not a match for any other denomination. Maybe it's one of the other state or territory quarters?

Aha! It's an Indiana state quarter.

A damaged coin. Somebody squeezed the two together in a vice.
