Why is it called a "Mint Error"? Seems to me that implies a mistake or accident. If the Mint purposedly used 1964 silver planchets to strike 1965 quarters, to finish up the "left overs", then it cannot be a mistake.
Perhaps a better term would be "Rarity" as there are not that many 1965 quarter struck-on-silver?

Yeah. It was accidental. The hypothesis is that silver planchets stuck in some of the tote bins, then loosed up and went through with the cupronickel batches.

WHile silver quarters were minted into 1965, they were not intended to be dated 1965. Any quarters struck in silver that are dated 1965 are errors.

Cladking, you are very well versed on modern coin.

How many of these 1965 silver quarters, dimes and 1964 cupronickel clads are out there, you think?

Seems the numbers are anywhere from 10 to a few dozen on this quarter. I'm curious. I would have bought it anyway, because the pricing is pretty stable on them and I really wanted a silver quarter from my birth year.

I used to keep count and never got over "8". However some very knowledgeable folks have told me there are at least a dozen and as many as "18".

1964 silver dimes are similar. There are no clad '64 dimes and a single quarter. I once made an offer on this quarter but it was way too low. Now it would sell for far far more. There are other oddballs like a couple of '71 silver half dollars and a '77 silver half. There's a Philly mint Ike 40% proof. There are probably several mules of different reverses on dated obverses. There are lots of clads on wrong stock planchets and some of these are even common.

There are quite a few very interesting and rare moderns but the '65 silver quarters are among the most widely known and most desirable.

Thx all of you for the congrats!

kaxaba keep looking. I do as well still. It's easy! Watch the dimes as well. If you buy junk 90 pct silver, especially watch.

Clad, I would agree the '65 silver quarter is definitely popular, only second to one other transitional error...the 1943 copper cents.
Don't forget the 1974 and 1977-D silver clad Ike errors. I would love to eventually have 1974-D silver clad Ike.

I really need to start weighing my 1965 halves. I have heard rumors for quite a few years that there were 90 pct errors amongst the 40 pct ones.
