    Greetings all a friend of mine sent me pictures of this Washington quarter I believe it's a 1994 but you can only see the four in the date. I told her I think it's wiped out by the environment but I could be wrong it could be a combination of a few things I need an expert opinion so I can let her know or I can just tell her to join the site thanks Screenshot_20230528-125742.png

    Looks like it was wiped out by a dremel......

    It doesn’t matter how this happened or what the date is. It’s not silver, it’s clad so it’s a spender. It’s definitely damaged.

    You sure it's not silver?that looks like an (S) mint mark on the reverse in-between the olive branches to me,could be coincidental damage though,still worthy for better close ups,also the weight difference can be caused by the damage and it is still within silver quarter tolerance.

    I think your coin is silver, 1954-S. No "S" coins were made between 1954 and 1968.
    In 1968 the MM was put on the obverse, right side. So...

    What is the brand and model of the scale, as some scales (such as food scales) round up.
    So it could be a clad quarter at 5.67gr but rounding up would make it 6.0

    Clad quarters never had the mintmark on the reverse. Check your Redbook...

    Strictly guessing: I'm leaning toward a 1944-S or 1954-S because of the mint mark location and that you stated you could make out a 4 for the last number of the date (Hard to tell with picture). Puzzled as to what caused the look of the coin. The edge looks like it's a clamshell split but the rest of the coin looks like post-mint damage. Still worth the silver so I'd keep it for the silver.

    Are you guys kidding me? Somebody took a can opener and a dremel to this thing.....nothing about the condition of this coin is naturally occurring.

    I didn't mean to imply it was natural. Just that the edge looked like a clamshell split by the way it was split. Similar to this:

    But this too most likely was caused post-mint along with the other extensive damage that perhaps was done with a dremel, can-opener, sledge hammer, or many other possible ways. My take is its silver so keep it for the melt value.

    Definitely a garage project. I think it's silver but that's about it.
