  1. Thank you! I appreciate it. I still probably wouldn't try to sell it anyway. I'm not ready to get rid of it. At least not yet. I saw the other auctions but I didn't see any with the layer problem so I thought I'd ask.
  2. I'm hoping somebody can help me out. I don't know if I should get this coin professionally graded. I'm new to collecting and the advice I've gotten so far has been very different. I'm told this coin could be worth a lot of money and I've been told it's not worth grading, I should just try to sell on ebay or something and get whatever I can. I love this coin. In fact, it's the coin that got me interested in the hobby. I started looking into why it looks this way. It's my first find. I just want to know if it's worth getting graded or if it's only worth holding onto for sentimental reasons.
  3. I have a Maryland State Quarter that has no copper band around the edge. I put the coin on my postage scale and compared it to a regular Maryland State Quarter. The silver edge coin weighs 5.69 grams while the regular copper band version weighs 5.58. Canadian planchet maybe?
  4. I have a Maryland State Quarter that has no copper band around the edge. I put the coin on my postage scale and compared it to a regular Maryland State Quarter. The silver edge coin weighs 5.69 grams while the regular copper band version weighs 5.58. I was thinking nickel stock but that's still too heavy. I'm relatively new to coin collecting and I was told that it might be foreign stock. Maybe a foreign planchet got mixed in from a contracted mint job. Anybody come across one of these or help me shed some light on whats going on with this quarter?
