    Keep it if you like but it's still just 25 cents, heavily circulated and really common.No mint mark means it was minted at Philadelphia in this case.If it was one year earlier(1964) $4 of silver then yes that would be a keeper,close but not silver.

    No US coin minted in 1965 bears a mintmark.

    The photos are a bit pixelated to tell condition of the surfaces. As far as the details of the coin, AU. Most of these coins are found in circulation with less than XF details.

    That was the first year the mint began striking clad coinage. That on it's own makes it a bit of a transitional and mildly historical piece. Fairly common and doesn't carry any numismatic premium, but hey... You never know what the future may hold.

    It’s a spender. It’s the first year of clad coinage and no mint mark for that year either.

    Mint marks were omitted in 1965 to discourage collectors from taking more coins from circulation for their collections and for dealer and investor/speculator holdings. Back then there was bull market for rolls of coins. That market still exists, but it a much smaller part of the coin market these days. Mint marks came back in 1968.

    Going thru some pocket change from last year. Here is an honest Au, not the same year, but something that has the potential to get over a quarters value on the open market.

    A low end VF '65 quarter is not often seen any longer. In only ten more years they'll probably all be either cull or VG and lower.

    Nice looking eagle reverse quarters are starting to disappear.

    This really started in 1999 but until very recently it was difficult to see. Now that there are so few nice ones left they stand out more and their disappearance is more noticeable. I haven't seen any of the four or five better date coins in a couple years except for culls.

    Truly remarkable since it doesn't look like a mint set coin.
