I've read about spooned coins and dryer coins but still wanted verification.
This quarter has no rim, the edge is smooth but rounded, not flat. Does not look hammered.
The diameter is slightly less than normal and it weighs 4.81 gms instead of 5.67.
I have other quarters from this era whose edges are almost worn down but they all have rims.
Advice and comments appreciated. Apologies for the lousy specimen.

My first thought is a well used casino quarter.

@poll, thank you for posting well above-average pics. Well done. For this quarter it sure does look like mechanical wear on the edge rather than, for example, being struck outside the collar.

Looks to me like it is an acid coin.
The lighter weight, lack of rims and the receding copper core indicate that.
