    So I'm at work today hunting rolls as I open them and I spot what I thought was a silver quarter, then a Canadian Quarter because the edge was too new, but when I turned the coin over it was a 2006 P Nebraska Quarter... The Philadelphia mint doesn't make silver quarters, and the weight of 5.74 grams makes it too light for a Silver planchet, and too heavy for a Canadian planchet, so I was wondering if anyone had any idea of what it is...

    The whole edge looks like this... Seems kinda suspicious to me...

    Or the edge has been plated over very common.

    Some places made silver, platinum and gold clad versions for "collectors".

    What is the reason for plating the quarter?

    IMO it's a marketing gimmick. (Same as colorizing a coin).
    @killswitch95 The weight of a clad quarter is 5.67 grams (+/- 0.227g).

    Sounds like you totally just made that up. I never heard of such an error.

    It's just a plated quarter. Even the edge. Done outside of the US Mint.
