    What do you think? Any chance the darker quarter is an error.

    It weighs the same as a regular quarter. It doesn’t seem to just be dirty when I look at it (but I guess it could be), and the edge looks different too.

    Thanks! 80B3C228-86C9-4607-9D2E-BE2A12E54639.jpeg 5B9C8BB9-DE29-4BC0-8F5A-1D6CE0C51BBA.jpeg FE92785A-039D-4204-987A-0F8FF6754FC0.jpeg 2A1CF2A3-32E2-46F4-9E6B-FF7F93F6EB92.jpeg

    That guess is correct.
    As stated before.. It is Environmental Toning Damage to the Cupro-Nickel clad layer. The Copper toned. And the reeded edge wore away. All damage.

    I metal detect. Clad coins and Nickels are affected by soil, dirt, sand, the elements and harsh chemicals.

    Here are examples from my detecting hunts..

    Sure.. You just need to start your own separate thread. Pictures are needed.

    If you post on this thread we consider that hijacking.

    We call the damage on your coin ED, that's environmental damage, not the other ED. LOL
