What's the deal with this quarter?

7 posts in this topic

I got this along with a small lot of foreign coins I purchased. Nothing too special in the lot but found this to be interesting. Not sure what's going on with it, or what happened to it or maybe it's even fake? Acid treated?


Normal weight for a silver quarter is 6.25g, as you can see, this one weighs 1.7g. Looks like a horrible cast copy, color makes me think of aluminum.

I doubt it's silver, doesn't have that feel or weight to it. I'm thinking the same, a crude fake. No reeding, Diameter and thickness are pretty much spot on with a regular quarter. Who collects fakes around here? Might be time for a free gift.
