      It looks like someone removed the reeding, exposing the cross section.

      Both photo's above point to the same thing. Someone wanted to make a silver ring and found out you can't do it with a new quarter. You always get the copper in a new quarter, the old ones you got a totally smooth silver ring. For a female you would use a dime and make a pinky ring. The edge above and the exaggerated rim in picture two both point to someone having tried to spooned this coin. It was a fad years ago and some folks even today give it a try, it isn't difficult. Next person to get the coin swears it has to be a mint error. This is the second one posted here in a week.

      Thank you for the logical explanation about my post mint alteration quarter. I will try to check posts more carefully in the future. Thanks again :)
