consumer driers tend to max out at 135F top end, however the commercial and industrial ones that businesses use run up to about 190F. for reference cotton (which is combustible) will start to break down and generate it's own heat and scorch at around 205F.\
Anyways, some will say "a dryer can't scorch metal" this is true of residential dryers, not so of commercial/industrial dryers that are run constantly at high temperatures, and in no time a coin trapped between the inner tub, and outer drum can look like this quarter pictured. Just ask the Maytag repair man!
@John Burgess said, a dryer coin, not an error. The smaller diameter is due to the edge being forced inward.
The SHADOW knows...
the above quarter is a result of "spooning" or some such...hitting the edge of the coin with a spoon or similar object, defdam as well..
That's also damage to the ear.
It took a hit from another reeded edge.
I hear ya. Just someone fooling around but a nice sharp cutting tool. Not a punch
That Washington Statehood quarter appears to be a dryer coin.
Edit- oops- that was already mentioned.
