I found this quarter the other day at a local park. Normally, I would think, great! a quarter! but upon further inspection I noticed that it is put together like a sandwich. Looks like a copper slug, clad with a silver piece on the front and back.

 

Is this normal? Or is this a rarity?

 

I don't know alot about coins.

 

I included a "normal" quarter for reference.

 

Thanks

Normal clad coins are made like this, they are sometimes called "sandwich" coins. As for yours having a flat rim, it was either ground off, what Becky said, or struck outside of the collar when minted.

Thanks for the tips and the warm welcome!
