Hello everyone! My mom gave me a quarter and it's the weirdest one I've seen yet! It doesn't look like wear and tear or damaged.. because the ring around the quarter is still intact! Let me know what you think!

Best regards,
David

I think it is a dryer coin, several times in fact.

@dtra, first welcome to CCF. Second, interestingly enough, with dryer coins, the rim is often made more pronounced. If you look at the edge though, the reeding should be worn completely smooth.

I think I own the most pronounced dryer coin ever. Side-by-side with an unadulterated Philippines 1945-S 50 centavos.

Ever take the link that the words dryer coin take you to on the forum?

There are some thick ones shown there as well including a quarter that is 8.6mm thick.

dryer coin is explained expertly by Earle42 if you click on the blue link. Worth a read (thanks Earle42)!

I agree, this example by the OP does look indeed like a dryer coin. These are fairly common. We get asked about them several times weekly.

to the CCF!
ça va bien aller

None of the coins featured in this thread are dryer coins. They are damaged, though. The first was rolled and squeezed in the horizontal plane by a hand-cranked or motor-driven mechanical device. Interior elements were mechanically removed (probably abraded). The second quarter appears to have been spooned. A dryer coin would show the interior design pummeled into mush. The perimeter would show a thin apron of metal covering the peripheral design elements.
