I’ve had this quarter for several years now and have searched online trying to find information on it. It’s a 1999 Pennsylvania quarter with the P mark. It has a large bulge visible on both sides on the front the hair waves into the bulge and on the back the word independence is going across the quarter showing that the bulge is from within the quarter.  Any info or opinions attaching a few pictures. I’ve been curious about this piece for a while.BF286FF2-8EB3-491E-B3AA-6081866F6373.thumb.jpeg.fc6c081ab14d87efcc273518b973e7dd.jpeg

It's  an ordinary coin with environmental damage.

Given the totality of the circumstances of the coin, my best guess would be exposure to an extremely high temperature, such as in a spot welding device. Some people do stuff to coins just to see what happens. The coins are largely defenseless at that point.
