I got this quarter in a hand full of change. It looks rusted, but I was under the impression that coins don't rust.

Trap hit it on the head...somebody putting dug coins back into circulation...just this weekend, at the convenient store, I didn't want to use my debit card to buy a newspaper, so I grabbed my pouch and my wire brush and gave some quarters a quick clean...got a funny look at first, but they know me and know what I do. ..Ddf
 

Yep, most clad Washington quarters that have been in the ground for a while are going to turn an orange / brown color.
Clad Quarters, (1965 to present ), are 75% copper and 25% nickel. These are nonferrous metals. Nonferrous metals don't rust.
