Good morning from Italy.
Maybe mine will be a stupid question and I apologize in advance. I accidentally stumbled across the history of the transitional error of this coin and by checking my collection I have this piece with a strange green patina that looks very similar to those formed in silver coins. The border, however, would seem to devalue the hypothesis of a quarter of a dollar in silver, but the patina that has formed is totally different from that which is usually formed in copper-nickel quarters. Unfortunately, right now I don't have the precision balance that probably would have removed all doubts.
Could I kindly ask for your opinion?
Many thanks in advance!

It's clad, no question.

to CCF! How are things in Italy?

The edge tells it all. It's a copper/nickel clad coin. It's impossible to say what has turned the surfaces green, but it's just worth 25.

Don't worry about asking questions. We love to look at coins of all types. Besides, if you don't ask, you'll always wonder about what you have.

Ciao!



After you have 50 posts, send me an email. I'll swap you a real silver quarter for something comparable in your collection.
