It should be steel under the nickel plating, not anything copper-colored.
Whatever happened to it, I'm pretty sure it didn't leave the mint that way.

Incorrect. It is a muli-ply plated process. The inner planchet is steel, but then there is a thin layer of nickel, thicker layer of copper and finally a thicker layer of nickel.

I should also mention, that the coin in question, is damaged, whereby the outer layer of nickel has been rubbed off on the high points.

If you go through enough quarters you will see this happen a lot.

My apologies. I guess we have an answer.

My thing is a few of the copper points are not the high points. Like the eye? Either way. Thank you
