The obverse is flat, and the coin is overall round. The rim near the "squashed" area is wider with full reeding.

It's called an indent strike, which occurs when a second, blank planchet is in the chamber during a second strike.

I have a 1973 quarter that is similar...

That did not happen, edge reeding is clearly visible, blank planchets have no reeding.
"Dipping" is not considered cleaning...

Right!

A partial brockage then...the second planchet in the chamber had already been struck prior

So compared to other errors, how common (or rare) is it?

Uncommon, but not rare. Obviously mint state examples are the most sought after. A good mint state example might fetch CAN$125, it really depends how large the indent is, and how much of the partial blockage is recognizable.

Thanks. Then this strikes me (pardon the pun) as an example in the low range of desirability, but still interesting.
