I have a bicentennial quarter but it is two toned silver/gold hue also uniformly scratches on flat sections eg. Not raised surfaces like date, face, drummer, etc. Its also VERY magnetic! I'm so confused and curious hopefully ill figure this upload thing and can share some pics!
Ok pics uploaded now but still NO clue as to where to start. Noticed the crack at the rim and the D.thank you for any info.

@bs72, first welcome to CCF. Second, can you please add a picture of the edge of this coin? It might have been plated (after it left the mint).

Thank you Spence! I did my best to get the rim. Is this an anomaly or common?

First,

A CNC quarter is 8.33% Nickel. Like Fe, Co, and Nd, Ni is ferromagnetic. The outer layers of a quarter could be magnetized with a strong electromagnet, such as those found in a metal recycling facility or auto salvage yard.

Thank you @fortcollins. Appreciate your input. I guess I should have gave a little more detail about how magnetic this thing is. I can get about 1.5"-2" when it catches the magnet. I could honestly say the 1/4" steel washer I had next to it has the same magnetic force as this quarter. Not only that but the die chip/ cracks as well as the 2toned coloring on both sides. I guess I'm just curious to know if I have a keeper or spender lol. Bless you all for any info given! Happy hunting!
