    Looks like someone gave it a touch of sanding. Doesn't look like natural wear.

  • I kinda thought it might just be worn but the edges look so good I figured it would be hard to be worn in only those spots and not the edges.

    @Bitcoin2021 Welcome, so you'd do better to post a clear pic of the whole obv and rev of a coin. Declare what you think you see. Then you'll get feedback. Good luck. Peace Roy

    A weak strike error is possible but we need full obverse and reverse and a sample of the edge.

  • Might be just worn or someone may have done this by hand kinda looks like scratches on his face.

  • This is why i pulled it out the stack, just BC it didnt have edges on it, also it only weighs 5.45 grams

    After it left the Mint, it was pressed partially flat and then rolled around the edge to raise up the rims.

    @Bitcoin2021... Welcome aboard. Your quarter has been damaged after it left the mint... could happen in many ways. No numismatic premium. Cheers, RickO

    What those guys above said.
    And welcome. Times like these I like to spread goodwill and peace.
    As in my pocket piece.
