Hello all. This caught my eye and I wanted to know if its anything or if its normal? I noticed a faint border of little circles while I was tilting the coin and it starts just above the "JB" initials and carries through the Olympic Logo and then turns right going through the word "Masculin" and up through both the Skates and 2002 then goes up ending at the left hockey glove. Sorry for the brutal pictures. Its all I got and so I hope you see what I'm seeing. Thanks again!

Normal, this type of pattern is seen frequently on colorised quarters.
"Dipping" is not considered cleaning...

Ok thanks I will look at it with a black light...I just cant seem to find any other ones with those little circle marks like this so I thought maybe there was more to the picture.

You see the same thing with the poppy 25c. It's a sealant applied to the coin to "preserve" the colour in circulation. It does glow under UV light, and if you really want to go down a rabbit hole, do an internet search on "Canadian spy quarter".
