Strike through railroad rim or just circulation wear?

    Found this in pocket change and put it away about 15 years ago. Rim folds over motto and the L in Liberty. Reverse looks as if coin was struck through a dish towel.

    Looks like a dryer coin damage. It was caught between the wall and the drum of a dryer. That would cause the effect you see on the rim.

    This is what a railroad rim looks like.

    Ahaaaa... Thanks cpm9ball picture I had when I heard it used in a discription was the rail train wheel rode on. Have a quarter from 1974 that looks like that on the edge but kind of looks like green in color and I thought it was glued together but kept it. Will post pics when I come across it in this maze of tupperware, coin holders and plastic baggies.
