Welcome to the forum!

 

Really hard to tell you much without pictures.

 

First guess, the coin has been struck through grease. This is incredibly common, and worth zero premium.

 

If you show us pictures, we might be able to tell you something more/different.

Welcome to the boards!

 

Yes, missing dates, letters or design elements are a common occurrence on minted coins due to foreign substances or debris on the planchet (unstruck coin) or on the die itself.

 

Pictures of the coin in question would be most helpful in identifying the anomaly on this 2005 California quarter.

 

PS: MY Grandmother had a stinky coin purse but I was always glad when she pulled out a dime or even a nickel and it was off the penny candy section.
