I found a similar post, but theirs had a "JF" mark, whereas mine has no stamps at all. It seems that it is lighter than other quarters from various years and to be in excellent condition considering the year ('63). I got it from a quarters machine for pool tables at a local bar. I read that it could be a proof. Can anyone please take a look and give me their input if it's worth anything and if so, an estimate? It would be greatly appreciated.

to CCF. Not a proof but a business strike. No mint mark means it was minted at the Philly mint. It is silver so it has melt value.

As John says It's not a proof but nice condition for being in the wild for so many years . Might be worth a little more than melt to a beginner collector .

Still a great circulation find!

This puzzles me because genuine silver quarters weigh MORE than "quarters from various years" (which I interpret to mean those you normally find in circulation today - copper-nickel clad).

He said it "seems" lighter so he didn't weigh it just a subjective guess from holding it in his hand. A VERY inaccurate judgement. Unless you have a lot of experience and practice the typical person can't detect less than a 5 gram difference in weight between two objects. With training you might be able to detect a 1 gram difference.

I can see what appears to be the JF initials on the truncation of the bust.

Umm... Actually this one looks a bit special to me. I believe its a type B REV. The type B was an error made using a proof die on a circulation strike quarter. Look at the larger gap between the E and S in STATES on the REV.

Its worth more than melt.

I agree with earle, definitely a type B reverse.
