1. You have a '63 quarter with a wicked scratch on the obverse. It is silver, but not worth over melt. Keep it in your silver stash.
2. You have a '72-D quarter with circulation wear and surface discoloration, perhaps from being buried. This one is a spender.

Yeah that one it is super dirty. But the copper content on the outer layer made me think about keeping or not. Definitely keeping the silver for my collection though

@gg808, ok well, the investment to keep it is only 25, so if you like it, then yes you absolutely should keep it.

The 72 quarter is thinner then other quarters I've compared it to. Mabye a factor in missing clad layer. If it is missing a layer I'd keep it regardless of condition

SOrry I misunderstood your question at first about this coin. I'm quite sure it isn't missing a clad layer, but if you post the weight of this coin, then we can confirm whether it is just surface discoloration or an actual mint error.

to CCF. The 63-D is only worth melt value,not a "collectable" coin.
The other is not an error and spendable.

You should hold your coins by the edge to avoid fingerprints which can ruin the value of a coin
