I need someone opinion that knows more than I do on this.

Is this a cooper quarter?

    Post-minting damage. Not an error.

    Your coin suffered environmental damage. Many times, clad coins with that type of discoloration are metal detector or ground finds. There can be a lot of different chemical reactions that can stain a coin. Your coin didn't leave the mint looking like that and isn't an error

    BTW, if it was struck on a planchet that was missing the clad layer on both sides it would be seriously thin and underweight.
