That would be a wrong planchet in this case, clad vs silver, silver vs clad.
Some 64's were made from the clad die reverses meant for the 65's. Not all the quarters dated 1964 were minted in 1964, some were minted in 1965 and the wrong (clad) reverse was used. I don't recall the differences but someone here will.
Does it way 6.25 grams? Or the normal 5.76 for clad?
Thats the right way to check, although I'm sure this is not a transitional error.
Ok now I remember it just didn't sound familiar at first.
Yes, this too.
There you go
Pics aren't good enough for secure ID, but this site will help a bunch.

Oh boy, as in her she goes again Sal or she might have a small find?? Lol, specifics please , pins and needles!
Did you look at this web page @Barbi Petersen. You should go over it and match your reverse to the ones posted. Type C is a quite valuable coin, Yours isn't but it gives you a taste for the hunt right?
Yes that it does! Thanks.
You didn't understand. Some 64's were struck with the clad reverse DIES. They are silver but struck with the wrong die.
Yes, I took it the wrong way on this one.
I know about the die differences, just to me I think of the 44 steel cent when I hear transitional error.
we need a new word
For the type B reverse, compare it to the details of a proof coin of the same year or era.
For the Type C reverse, which is much easier for me to tell, just use the actual reverse of a 65 or later quarter to compare your quarter to. You will immediately notice the difference in the eagle's tail feathers and especially the definition of the leaves on the olive branch.
Edit to add: the '64 D is the only Washington quarter to be found or known with the reverse of the next year. With literally millions of P mint coins minted at the same time, collectors have tried for decades, me included, to find a P mint coin with a Type C reverse. I have 5 D mint coins with the Type C that I've cherry picked through the years.
