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 .

Worth no more than $4
Still a great circulation find!
People often question my "strange" or "weird" hobby of coin collecting. I think of these people as the common, "pocket change" people. Nothing unique about them. They question those who are different, call them "weird" for not being average. Those who have these strange hobbies are the "rarity" people. They are the "weird". The "quirky." Those who are different from the group are the Morgan dollars in a pile of modern dimes.

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.

circulated condition is about 5.00. If the condition was mint state, then the price is higher.
