20896RE: 1999 d Delaware statehood quarter
- Jan 1, 2009I think that it's also possible that the quarter you found might have
been released from a silver proof set into circulation. I have found a
handful of proof coins that 'escaped' from their proof sets into
circulation in my time. This would account for the bright luster too.
Just a possibility.
Weighing the coin would be a good diagnostic. The silver proof should
weigh in at 6.25g, and the clad at 5.67g. There is also an
unmistakable 'ring' (sound) to a silver coin when spun, as opposed to
the dull sound a clad quarter would make.
