No... just environmental damage, probably lost in a flower bed for a while or similar.
The give away is the dark color and that it's both sides...
nothing I see makes me think missing clad
thank you both! I appreciate your input! Thought it might be unclad because of the side view, the evenness of the color and it seems lighter in weight the other quarters. But I'm a newbie, so I'm still learning!
Take a look at the photos on this past thread on Coin Talk: https://www.cointalk.com/threads/coins-missing-clad-layer-s.254745/
Your coin would look like one of these if the clad layer was missing. Keep up the search.
would an unclad weight be different?
Yes. Usually the missing clad layer is on one side of the coin and typically it weighs 1 gram less than a normal clad quarter which weighs 5.67 grams.
thanks for that info I have a 1999 that's a horse of a different color !
