Hello all, my mother worked as a bank teller for years and used to bring me home cool coins for my collection every now and then. This is one of them, it was brought home around 2002/2003. Any ideas what this is from? It appears to be silver, looks like silver and sounds like silver however it is a D mark and not an S as these typically are. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I've provided pictures of the coin on both sides as well as the edge against another quarter of the same year. I've scoured the internet and found nothing about it.

Edit: the grayish stains on the face side of the coin are some sort of residue, it is not discoloration.

to CCF. Most likely a silver or platinum plated coin after it left the U.S.mint. Also, never hold coins like that,it causes finger prints and will lower any potential premium. Hold by the edge only.

On of the plated examples sold on HSN that were plated. They sold these to the rubes back when the 50 States program was a hot item. Now they are being spent as face value as that is all they are worth. A plated coin turn an alter surface. It removes collector value. Not silver. A scratch on the incuse area on the reed will show the copper:

Spender.
Only San Francisco coins had proof silver sets and clad proofs with the 'S' mintmark on them.

The weights were different on the clad and the silver quarters. Note above.

The best non-destructive method is to weigh this quarter.

I agree with all of the above. Sorry it's not better news. It seems like plating would add value, but it actually substracts from it. Please keep looking!

The weight should confirm what it really is. Just from the images, it looks plated.

yes on a quarter it should be clear if it's under 6.25 grams (and should be under 6 grams)then it's been plated. it's harder to do this with cents and dimes because the variation in the weight difference is much slimmer between the two when factoring the mint tolerance also. but it works on the quarters.

clad quarter should be 5.67 grams plus the plating. even heavily plated it won't get over 6 grams.

Mint tolerance is +/- 0.227g for the clad quarter

Also I'll guess it's platinum plated as most of them that were professionally made for sale to people were either done in platinum or gold plating.
Mint tolerance is +/- 0.194g for the 90% silver quarter.

even at maximum weight of tolerance with plating the clad quarter doesn't make it to 6 grams.
even if a 90% silver is light and at the minimum tolerance, it shouldn't be below 6 grams.

the edge scraping thing shouldn't be necessary to find out, just a gram scale that is at least 2 decimal places, and doesn't round.
