Hello all I'm just wondering if someone could give me a little insight on this quarter I found in my pocket change please and thank you all in advance? Its weight is 5.0 and it does seem to look somewhat differently than the other quarters from the same pocket change.

The rim and surface texture indicate to me that this quarter spent some time in an acid bath.

It's under weight because the acid ate part of the copper.

Either an acid bath or time buried in acidic soil. That's why the edge looks so weird. The copper core is eaten away faster than the cupronickel cladding.
