@james, having the ridges worn away along the edge with the rim more pronounced is indicative of mechanical damage, such as with heavy arcade game, slot machine use, or especially being a so-called dryer coin.

Can you take a photo of both sides laying flat on something.
It may be a dryer coin but need to see photos of the whole coin.
Also put it on top of another quarter and see if the circumference is smaller.

I posted a picture of the quarter on top of another and it seems a little bigger than the one with ridges also seems thinner and the stamping seems like its not as deep as other quarters. I posted the photo withe the others on the original post

Be careful of handling coins you might think have numismatic value with your fingers. Oils from you skin can damage the surface of your coins. Inexpensive cotton gloves can be bought anywhere hobby supplies are found.
