1987 quarter look around the rim

What may have caused the issue with the rim to be crimped like this. It looks and feels similar to a bottle cap

When rims are intentionally flattened, that makes them curl inward, and the overall "dimension" will be smaller.

:eureka:
the numismatic term here is "spooned".

Thank you. I'll read about that term. It also explains why it feels harsh not smooth due to the tools used
