    Exactly. Lack of copper visible on the rim is not an indicator of a 90% silver coin. Now, if copper is visible...then yes, it is clad. But, I have seen many clad coins without visible copper.

    If it is really a silver 1965 quarter it is definitely worth your time.

    AWORDCREATED Hardly Noticeable

    True for quarters but not 40% halves.

    High school kids in chemistry class love to experiment with plating coins.

    So do new employees at firms that do metal plating.
  7. The coin is 99.99% NOT silver, probably a plated/counterfeit clad quarter.

    Of the three or four that I believe exist, I own the finest. 1965 quarter struck on a 90% silver planchet AU 58. Mint error. Pcgs.

    Very cool, very cool indeed!
  17. WOW. I think I found an error too!
    Can you show us the edge? (If you have pics of the edge before u got it certified?)
    because I want to compare it to mine.
  18. yeah, very interesting and worthwhile to see my coin looking like silver (Then spending it to see who thinks its silver)!

    What a great coin. A 65 silver and a 64 clad are at the top of my want list. Quarter or dime I don't care. There's a 65 silver quarter on the market now that's not near as nice as this one for $6500.

    Off metal versions e.g. 65 quarter on silver dime planchet appear to be much less rare.

    Time for a set of scales. The best investment an error enthusiast can make.

    Very true OEG! I got my set to distinguish 1982 copper/zinc cents. Without it, I wouldn't have found my 1941 wheat cent struck on rolled thin planchet (2.72 grams). I "mishandled" it and it sounded like silver. I checked weight. It's fairly minor, but I have an example! I check most now.
