This quarter looks and feels like it has extra metal!I know that doesn't sound right,but it does. I think... My husband was looking at it under the microscope and it looked like it has circles all around some wore out lettering on the back. I picked it up and found out that those s places were raised even and kinda sharp. What do yall make of it?

These are stains, not errors. It's Post Strike Damage.

Hmm..Those places on it are sharp though. Is that normal for a stain?

Not a stain but not extra metal either or it wouldn't be transparent.
Possibly glue. Have you seen if it could be picked off?
Sometimes acetone can be used to remove it.

No we can't remove it. I am not sure what it is. But it's very sharp. And it looks to only be on the messed up lettering too

I agree with @jd and @cj that this is dried glue. You should be able to peel it off the surface with a sharp edge like a razor blade. Soaking in the right solvent for long enough would remove it also (acetone is a good start, but there are others). Regardless, this coin is a spender.

Dried clue is what it is. Spend it, don't mess with it. Not worth the time. Altered coin.
