    Not a wrong planchet -

    As mentioned above, what you see
    occurred after the coin was in circulation.

    The surfaces are damaged; not an error of any kind.

    Literally anything in the environment that your coin came in contact could potentially do something like that. No way to nail it down further.

    Exposure to the elements.. Soil, sand, dirt, water, heat and chemicals.

    They are basically dirty coins :yack:

    Here are some Metal Detected coins I have found with issues on the clad layer and even Nickels -

    Your coin is no different from the above coins. It is damaged by the environment. It just tones differently due to what elements it was exposed to. Any effort to prove otherwise is a waste on your behalf. Wasted time, wasted effort, wasted energy and wasted money. That's foolish!

    You'd be wasting your time and money, but if that is what you like to do, go for it.

    This is environmental damage. You do realize that there are a ton of different chemicals in use at car wash establishments. If it was at a self serve car wash, those quarters get used over and over. I just used quarters that looked a lot like yours at the car wash a few days ago that I got out of their change machine.
