Corroded. My guess would be it's been in soil or otherwise has sustained adverse chemical reaction. At least it's still worth $0.25 and legal tender.

Hello NumisMagic and WELCOME to the forum.  Looks like what the other experts here have said, just a corroded post mint damaged coin.  Lots of good info here on this site.  Keep looking!!!(thumbsu

Welcome to the forum. It is old and gray like a lot of us. But still worth every penny;)

That quarter has been in the ground. I find these metal detecting frequently and they look like this. I do tend to see the crystal like appearance on the obverse when they are in or near water also.
