I agree with the others. Plated novelty Quarter.
The normal edge shows 2 clad layers sandwiched around a pure copper core. That can appear different when the blanks are punched from the coil with a dull punch. The dull punch can pull the cupronickel of the clad layer over a part of the edge.
Were it missing clad, weight would be less than normal. Quarter weight missing one clad layer = 4.71 g +/- 0.347 g; missing two clad layers = 3.75 g +/- .467 g. A normal-weight missing clad error is possible, but extremely rare and is not the case with your coin.
No.. Don't waste your money.
