While looking though my coins this caught my eye. I noticed solid lines on this quarter. It only has them on the backside. Is this worth anything or just neat find?

A closer view will show if these are raised or incuse lines on the reverse. If incuse lines with a trench, it is damage with cuts into the coin. If they are raised in the centers of the area you are looking at, it might be a die crack. But my guess from what I can see, they look like cut marks on the coin. I think I see copper lines. (It is were raised, it would be the clad color)

The lines are raised on the coin. I'm able to run my finger nail along the coin and it stops my finger, also you can see how the line goes over the leg.

I agree with coop. Kind of looks like a scratch with the color difference.

When some sharp tools are pulled across metal, the displaced metal rolls up a sharp burr that is raised above the surface along the outside, just like a plow being pulled across a field, leaving both a trench and a ridge or ridges of dirt. It will be there unless handling or other processes knock it off. That said, that is not always the case. There are ways/tooling for scribing metal such that the displaced metal is pulled away while cutting, not leaving much of a burr to start with.

There will be a trench on the center and the metal will rise on the fields:

A die crack will be raised on the center:

Note the fields are flat and the crack is raised above the field.
