I specialize in variety / error quarters. My question is regarding improper alloy mix and improper annealed coins.

I have many of various colors. Some have the nickel showing through, and some don't.
Without damaging the coin, is there a definitive test method to determine if a coin has either of these anomalies, short of sending it to one of the grading companies?

I just got a bank roll where the 2019 River of No Return is a dark gray. Must be a mistake of some kind.

I am new to the forum and need to figure out how to reduce my image size.

Thanks in advance for your comments.

If they are red in color, they may have been found metal metal detecting and will look like that after spending time homeless:

In regards to the improperly annealed error, if your able to I would suggest buying a graded example of one (I picked up a SBA example for under 20 bucks) that would allow you to compare each questionable coin with a proven one.

Good luck on future finds and have fun....
