The seller of this so-called quarter has described it as a likely fake, which it assuredly is. These typically non-silver pieces replicate half dollars, and a number of actual soldiers' names were used. These fakes often appear at flea markets and antique shops.

The two bidders on this piece obviously didn't read the description OR, like the seller, do any online research to see if others exist .... which they most certainly do.

That's a pretty prominent casting seam along the entire edge of the coin.
