I've never seen any other quarter with this same look so I'm wondering what it could be




This is the quarter in question next to a regular dirty old 1987 quarter

There is nothing unusual about this quarter than cannot be explained by the almost infinite number of variables the surface of a coin can come into contact with and be changed by.Toning from circulation is common.

Weight tolerances are 5.443 to 5.897 so the weight is normal.

Some extra help:

The same with coins.

Save Yourself time, effort, and disappointment...don't learn the coin hobby backwards.

Looking for random anomalies on coins and hoping they match up to something collectable will take you a lot more time, wasted effort, and disappointment repeatedly finding out you have nothing but post mint damage or useless Machine Doubling, Die Deterioration, etc.

Spend some initial time at places like error-ref.com, doubleddie.com, varietyvista.com, conecaonline.org, coppercoins.com etc. to find what actual and collectable coin errors look like.

A good way to start is, for instance, separate a bunch of pennies by date. Go to varietyvista.com and, date by date, use the reference there to see what errors are known for that specific coin/mint mark. Look for those specific errors/varieties using the pictures provided. After doing this for awhile you will KNOW what an actual error looks like and not have to waste time on face value and damaged coins.

I see a normal coin - what specifically are you seeing that causes you to believe this is special in some manner?

The picture doesn't do it justice but I did notice when looking at the picture that it looks almost as if there was another marking on it before it was stamped into this 1974. There's a few anomalies I see in the "background" I'll point them out with pictures when I get a chance in a little bit. I understand (somewhat) the toning coins get over time but again, of all I've ever come across not one looks like this one. Again pictures don't do it justice so I'll also try to take a better one when I am pointing on the other things I'm seeing but thanks for the answers so far

Given the photos posted I see a common '74 quarter. Agree with Earle42.

What you may have is a Die Clash.
Please provide larger pictures of that area.
