    You need to weigh your quarter to make sure it's the right weight.
    A silver quarter should weigh 6.25 grams, while a clad quarter only weighs 5.67 grams.

    Most likely a plated one.

    Yes worth repeating, get the weight first and that will give you a good idea whether it is real or not.

    As far as value goes, condition is extremely important. I know this is a broad range but I would guess between $3000 and $6000. Someone else may have a totally different idea.

    I don't have a camra that will get a clear pic of the rim, I had it weighed & it is silver it isn't in the best of condition but it is real. Im thinking about selling it & just wanted to see if someone knew what I should ask for it.

    You don't "ask" on something like this. You consign it to a major auction house (not TeleTrade), pay the commission, and they handle all the problems. Whatever it brings, it brings. There's one thing you can accomplish in advance. After it's TPG graded, email Coin World and ask if they would like to do a story about its discovery. Free publicity, plus a sense of competition among both buyers and auction houses.

    This is a case where you NEED the services of an intermediary, to deal with all the potential problems.

    If real, it IS worth your time.

    And on a controversial coin like this, don't even think of trying to sell it yourself. The auction house will fight for YOU, because they don't get paid if the coin doesn't sell. And they are quite skillful at dealing with scammers, non-payers, whiners, and complainers.

    Follow doug444s advice, many auction houses will have a table at major coin shows, so you will not have to let it out your sight.

    Who weighed it? Did the scale round to the nearest 1/10th? 1/100th? What was the actual weight?

    I'm not asking these questions because I doubt you. It's just that I doubt everybody! (a la Rick Harrison)
