Hi, so I was at work today and I busted open a roll of quarters from the safe we had and saw this. For a moment I thought it was a pre-1965 silver quarter but then when I looked at it it was a State Quarter. I've never seen anything like this in my life and googling it didn't give me much of a consensus, so I signed up here hoping one of y'all might have some information for me.

Plated coin. Probably a spent HSN coin. Worth face.

If it's clad, it should be under 5.7 gm, instead of 6.25 gm for a silver one, but you'd have to have a sensitive scale to see the difference. My postal scale would probably read 6 gm for both.

If it's silver plated, the tissue test probably wouldn't help.

to CCF. It is most likely a plated coin,silver or platinum. Weight it and let us know.
( I'm no pro, it's just my humble opinion )
