Hello everyone! I think I may have posted this in the wrong place initially. (Forum rookie) I hope that someone can help me with this bicentennial quarter I found a few years ago. As you can see from the pictures, it is an oddball. Any help would be great!

The copper layer is a bit more eroded, which means the coin probably spent some time in an acid bath.

Check out the top section of the reeds. It's like the top half is glued on or something.

@fujimo, first welcome to CCF. Second, can you please post to this thread overall pics of both sides of this coin? We sometimes see Magician's coins with this type of edge seam, but it could be a couple other things too.

The fields on the coin look pitted from acid, where the details have been "re-polished" from circulation wear..ie cameo... to CCF...happy hunting, have fun and best of luck with future finds

Is it heads on both sides? It does look altered. The reeds are different size on each half of the edge.
