@gigi, thank you for circling the areas of concern. It is so much easier to assess what you have when you make it clear in this way. On your quarter, all three of those areas looked damaged to me. Especially on the reverse, these are areas where metal has been gouged and deposited nearby.

No, Thank you for your acknowledgement and the help. I did another post, can you look at it and let me know your thoughts please? Is a post with the 1966 Lincoln penny. Again, thank you and have a good night!
with the great 'Spence' - the man behind the curtain - he knows all that is happening in this Coin World.. and I concur with his assessment - your quarter is simply showing the signs of its age and has the damage to prove it. Now I'll go find your other post and have a look see.
The eye was affected with Machine Doubling. You can see the reverse is also affect as well on image # 8. (last one) Note the stem is showing Machine Doubling. Just a 200K mile coin that has been working the vending machines for a very long time. Just a spender.
