A quarter could appear to be copper in at least 3 different ways. One's valuable, the other 2 aren't.

If the coin is the same weight and thickness as a normal quarter, then it's either been exposed to something (heat, chemicals) to change its color, or plated as part of a high-school chemistry experiment. I can attest to the latter, having done the same thing when we were learning about the electromotive series. Both of these cases are considered to be altered coins so they have no numismatic value.

However, if the coin is thinner than a normal quarter and the images are weaker, you might have what's called a lamination error. That error happens when the outer cladding doesn't bond to the coin's copper core properly and falls off. Lamination errors can be worth $10 or so.

Unless the coin is obviously thinner than a normal quarter, you'd need to have it examined in person by someone experienced in coin errors.
