Where are you seeing a reeded edge on this coin?

Funny rings around the edge of both peripheries make it look like it is less in thickness, but it's not if you compare the full thickness. Those rings on the edges could be from anything. They used to look like that for encased cents, but I'm not thinking too many 2004 cents ever see an encasement.

It is not possible for a Lincoln cent to have a reeded edge, the US Mint does not use a 19mm reeded collar.

I posted a couple of stinkin zinkins other day as "encased" and ya all jumped my %$#&@! Even Bio said it couldn't be which does make cents, an encased zinkin? I wonder if this isn't some machine effect, meaning getting caught in a counting machine and rolling or could this also be a product of a new style coin roll crimper? I've had some paper rolls that have been crimp-rolled quite tightly.

The beveled rims on the OP's coin are indicative of a weak strike. A strong strike will produce sharp, squared rims(proof) while a weak strike will not completely fill the collar and the rims will have a beveled appearance. As for the odd color, the coin has either been chemically cleaned or has been plated.
Rest in Peace

Iwannado, quarters have a reeded edge.

Good eye -- for noticing the beveled edge. (The color was pretty obvious.)

Keep hunting. There's stuff out there waiting to be found.
