Unusual Road Kill Quarter

I found this quarter on the street while walking. The color didn’t look right so I looked at it more closely and noticed the grove that goes a the way around it. Did someone try to cut it in half?

    I second the acid bath diagnosis. The copper core is softer than the alloy cladding and dissolves at a faster rate.

    Yep... acid bath or acidic soil... Acidic soil will do that also, though takes longer. Cheers, RickO

    Worry is the interest you pay on a debt you may not owe.
