But it was S Mint Mark with a weight of 5.75 grams.
The regular Quarter was 5.67 grams.
you'll need a jewelry scale (not a food scale) to properly weigh your quarter.
more than likely it's a regular Denver quarter with a worn edge.
AND, I have also seen clad coins, including those from the Bicentennial years, be struck where no copper shows on the edge.
You can find info on the Bicentennial coinage in your Yeoman Red Book. It will tell you whether or not the Denver Mint struck any silver coins for this date…Spark
BTW, the edge does look plated.
along the left edge of that quarter you can see copper. The "depth" of that copper is not as much as the comparison quarter, but it is visible there.
I believe your piece is clad and the metal smeared on the edge during striking (smeared edges do occur occasionally during the striking process). If you see ANY copper, no matter how small, its clad. No questions
FYI. If you managed to beat the extremely low probability and actually have something, it will have to be authenticated by a TPG. Just saying it looks silver or posting pics on a chat board doesn't even come close to the proof required to show its a significant find.
