Hi all....guess I have lurked too long & it is now my time to ask. Just afraid of getting shot down about stupid questions or answers I might give I suppose.
I have what I believe is a 1974 silver clad (40%) silver Washinton quarter. I know, they didn't make those.
I have had it since the late 70's. My mom's found it in change when she was working cash register. She has always saved ANY silver she found.
I had it weighed years ago, '79-'80 (at my local coin shop) & it was the weight of the '76 silver clad. Of course they offered me 5 bucks for it....it's just a proof & not worth anything...of course there is no mint mark on it but it is only a proof.
My guess is a transitional metal error.
Has anyone ever heard of this error? I have searched for years & have never heard of one on a 74 quarter.
I know...pics, but I have a poor camera & lets not even talk about pics under magnification.
