Just a damaged quarter.
And it looks like the other 2 pics didn't post so here we go again...
dryer coin that didn't progress into further damage.
It is unusual looking, but yes, you're right that it is similar to a "spooned" coin.
I think someone purposely "smoothed" the edge for whatever reason.
I tend to agree. Looking at it under a 10x it is not smooth. I'm leaning to "Spooner" coin. Why anyone would "spoon" coins is beyond me though.
The old silver coins were beaten with spoons to tap them out for making silver coin rings. Why anyone would do it to a modern coin is anybody's guess, however. Usually this sort of thing happens accidentally nowadays, due to things like the "dryer coin" phenomenon.
Could be. Maybe somebody ground down the edge to use the coin as a spacer or something mechanical. (Like to reinforce the bottom of a chair leg? But then where's the screw hole in the middle?) Who knows. It does look rather smooth for an accidental dryer coin, now that you mention it.
Because they are angry and bored people..
Your Quarter is not a Mint error.
