    My son received this in change today so I am skeptical. At first glance I thought it came out of a pond or sewer but under loop and then scope it appears to be a die clash of some sort. Weight is 5.69g and diameter is correct and non magnetic. Or did exposure to the environment and PMD cause this? Thanks for looking. 20211016_165743.jpg 20211016_165821.jpg Image_2021-10-16 16_49_59_412.JPG Image_2021-10-16 16_50_54_943.JPG Image_2021-10-16 16_51_17_686.JPG Image_2021-10-16 16_51_57_661.JPG Image_2021-10-16 16_54_46_450.JPG Image_2021-10-16 16_55_00_800.JPG Image_2021-10-16 16_54_09_527.JPG

    All I'm seeing is a hacked up environmentally damaged quarter.

    Lol...I remember those good ole days when pop bottles were a quarter. Pop the cap off with built in opener on the side gulp it down and turn in the bottle for a nickle.

    What exactly do you think a die clash is and where do you see it?

    The horizontal lines on reverse seem to show a pattern which affected quality of strike. I know coin has been in circulation 20 years and wondering if coin marks and circulation could make parallel imprints as are on reverse? Thanks

    A die clash is where the upper and lower dies come together without a planchet between them and they leave marks on each other. Here is an Indian Head Cent I have where you can see the wreath ribbon behind the Indian Head. I don't see any evidence of anything like this on yours.

    Thank you for the information and explanation. Could this coin have been a pendant at one time that may have caused the impressions or reverse?

    I'm sorry @Bargainbidder I've looked long and hard at your pix. I fail to see anything other than PMD possibly including parking lot attributions. All I see is a badly damaged 25 cent piece.

    Thank you for trying @masterswimmer I had a feeling it was damaged somehow and just curious if anyone had come across something similar and knew.

    You're welcome. I seriously tried to find the slightest thing that would help your cause, to no avail.

    Don't stop looking. Your search will eventually lead to success. Be persistent.
