I have a 1965 Washington quarter that weighs 5.83g. From what I have read the coin should weigh 5,67g is this a variation within acceptable weight?

This may or may not be legit -- [clad quarters] weigh 5.67 grams with a tolerance of 0.227 grams and a diameter of 24.26 millimeters. Washington quarters manufactured in 1964 and earlier have a composition of 90 percent silver and 10 percent copper, weighing 6.25 grams with a tolerance of 0.194 grams.

5.8 is heavy on the upper end of tolerance but not outrageous. Given the billion+ 1965 quarters minted (from late 1964 through early 1966) I can't imagine anyone would bother making a counterfeit.

I weighed a random 1965 quarter (actually cracked out from an SMS holder and in my Dansco) and got 5.7 grams on my cheap little digital scale. Given the fact that most inexpensive scales can't reliably measure less than 1g increments, especially not 0.1g, I wouldn't be too worried.

Total guess as there are no pics, but possibly plated.
