Hi I would like to know anyones thoughts on this strange quarter. It doesn't seem like its elemental damage or ware howeveri could be wrong entirety. Its got a completely different finish than any other quarter new or old, ive been comparing this and it just leaves me baffled on what this material could be other than the normal alloy they use to stamp the planchet. The pictures doesn't really do it justice because of the lighting;it's more prominent to the naked eye as opposed to my phone camera.

Looks like it spent some time outside in a parking lot where it was run over by a few cars - and you were close - it is "enviromental" toning making it darker than a normal silver colored quarter.

@jk, first welcome to CCF. Second, I agree that your quarter has just been damaged. This one is a spender.

Thank you guys for clearing this up for me. It was just a weird find to me because my knowledge on coins is so little at the moment compared to others. So I had to make a post about it. Tomorrow I have a few others id like to post as well. None like this one of course lol. These ones should actually have errors worth discussing.

To CCF! As said, it's just a damage coin. There's two terms that we use for this. The one I use (most preferably) is Post Strike Damage ( PSD). The second one that other members will use is Post Mint Damage ( PMD). Both of these terms mean the same exact thing, but the term Post Strike Damage is more preferably used by some. There's a discussion about this, if you are interested.
