I think the reverse is due to a weak / grease strike, but I cannot figure out what caused the damage on the obverse. There isn't any warping or signs of heat treatment on the coin, and the edges do not have reeding. The coin is no smaller than a normal quarter and based on the noise it makes when dropped it is identical in material to a typical quarter.

I only have a food scale which only gives me tenths of an oz, but this coin said 0.2 oz (6g), and so did a standard quarter. I realize its probably not much help if you don't have a more precise reading.

First,

Would you be willing to post photos of the edge?

Thanks!

My first thought was that it looks like the coin was acid dipped but the center was protected. But some surfaces look like they have glue covering them.

I'm leaning towards Post Strike Damage, but it also looks like it was struck through something. Maybe this was a dryer coin. I don't know of anything else that would account for the smooth edge.

I'm just not sure enough to say one way or the other.

Looking at the obverse rim makes me think it's a dryer coin or PSD. May be incorrect.

Here are images of the edge compared against another 2002 D Mississippi quarter. There are very faint imprints of the edge reeding, but the coin does not come fully flat on its edge. Also, the coin is the same diameter and thickness as a normal quarter.

I looked at dryer coins as some of you suggested, but the coin didn't lose any diameter compared to a normal quarter, and that seems to happen with dryer coins.

Looks like some sort of heat related issue. Copper core started melting? But, no darkening, so maybe used as a heat sink or ground for something? Weird.

The edge is showing damage. But not sure what is going on with the faces of the coin.
