Is this a planchet issue, damage or what? It looks like it was either folded or melted. But I can see the dates and writing fine through the "fold". Amy ideas what causes this?

I have one of the 1970 ones that was made from dime material, but that's thinner and easier to recognize, what's up with this one though lol

@mze, this quarter was damaged after it left the mint. The folded over metal may have come from this coin being trapped in rotating machinery, such as a dryer, but in any case it isn't a mint error.

Yes, post strike damage. Does show the classic signs of an early dryer coin.

If it is a dryer coin, the reeds will be missing from the edge and the diameter will be smaller than a normal quarter. The weight will also be normal. It is just a damaged coin if this description fits your coin. No premium for this.

The dryer does not melt the coin. The coin got caught in some machinery. There are a lot of threads on this subject.

Post mint damage ( PMD).

I'd like to see the one you have you say is made of "dime material"!

I'll post it when I get a chance, from what I understand it was made of "dime stock" without the majority of the quarter clad...

The longer the ride, the smaller in diameter the coin becomes:

If it was a dryer coin, the reverse would be effected like the obverse. I think the obv was ground down years ago, then wore down from circulation.
