So this one's going to be difficult I need advice on where to go from here. So let's start at the beginning.... weighing quarters out 67 hits the pile sounds different, weighed a little light nothing to severe I thought, continued on about checking Get a 1981 weighs less hits the pile sounds like every other quarter. Start dropping the coins on one another to check the pitch when they hit the 1967 doesn't sound like a clad quarter when it hits the pile I'máso confused!




For the reverse photo 1981 on left 1967 on right

These are not gold that they weigh each coin to make sure it is accurate. They have a tolerance amount assigned to them.

See that I'mácool with. The problem being here why doesn't the 67 sound like a clad quarter when it gets dropped the 1981 it to show I understand the weight tolerance however one sounds like a quarter when it falls the other sounds like something else that's why I'máconfused

If both weigh about the same I'd think they would sound the same when they fall not one having a different sound guess trying to say weight prob isn't what's making this quarter different but the composition of the metal

The 67 sounds like a different coin is being dropped not a quarter

Collar or rim? Both are normal the reading on the collar Is typical for a 67 worn down but still barely visible.

Should I just suck it up and send it off to be looked at by someone it's not something to be seen however it's so noticeable from the sound alone I would never forgive myself if I tossed it back into circulation

Ok so I don't think anyone understands what I mean when you drop the coin it sounds like silver or a different type of metal is there anyway I can personally check that

You see the copper clad layer in your photo. If it has the brown/red on the edge it is definitely a copper nickel clad. Sorry.

If it's clad, it's not a "wrong planchet". Nobody else but America (and Panama, which was using American-standard planchets) was using clad coins at the time.

I suppose the key question is, does it sound different to every other worn 1967 quarter? If it does, then I'd assume the "wrong sound" is due to an internal bubble.

The sound it is not a really test. Me I consider this test a blowing in the wind.

This it is a clad coin which loose weight due to the use. Just a spender not more.

The edge has been worn smooth. Perhaps deliberately. IMO a waste of money to get attributed. You'll get the same response as you got here.

I agree. What you have is just a worn out regular ole '67 U.S. quarter. Sound is NOT a test, as Silviosi said above, the sound test is "blowing in the wind." To have it graded will cost you a good $50-60 that you could spend (more wisely) on a nice coin for your collection. But, sometimes the best education is spent chasing down your hunches and learning (hopefully) from your mistakes. You came here asking for our opinion, and you have gotten it. Collectively we have said it's not worth pursuing, but in the end, that's up to you. Bonne chance!
