At first I thought PMD but not sure, Washington Quarter double strike?

    Altered surface. Done post mint
    Not a mint error of any kind.

    Take a metal pipe. Put it against the coin and strike it with a hammer very hard. That will give it the appearance your quarter shows.

    Why? Only the very angry person who did would know that.

    Either that or a vise job with the parallel lines.
    Definitely damage.

    Agreed - the diameter of the 'strike' is much smaller than the quarter itself. :cool:

    Not sure the damage on the obverse, probably what Pickin and Grinin said that it is a vise job with the parallel lines of the vise. The damage on the reverse however shows that the quarter was mashed into another quarter. I reversed the image like looking at it in a mirror and I can make out "TER DOLL" as in "QUARTER DOLLAR" on the damaged area on the reverse of the quarter. To me, that's evidence that the damage was caused by a second quarter mashed into the quarter pictured in this thread.

    Here is a screenshot of the quarter that the OP posted:


    Next this is the same image that I reversed:
