Hey everyone I know it's been a while since I posted. I've been really busy with work lately. I'm not entirely sure what I'm looking at. Is this a mint error? Any help would be appreciated thanks in advance!

@zac, thx for including that edge pic. From that visible separation line, it looks to me like there is hardened solder on this quarter. What is the weight?

Thanks everyone for the input. Spence@ I'm not sure what the weight is but after you said that I put it under magnification and confirmed what looked like melted metal. Touched it with with a little heat and it melted like butter. Now to see if I can get it off.

Hold it with a pair of pliers, heat it up with a torch , then gently smack it on the edge of the coin onto a hard surface (one you don't care for much) and it should 'splash off' . Then lets see the results.

On another note, my comment up above apparently was wrong.

So what I ended up using vice grip pliers and a heat gun to get the solder to a liquid state and then just wiped the coin really fast with a rag I didn't care about. Worked really well because I tossed it into my coin jar before I saw your reply and now can't seem to single it out.
