It has a smooth edge because it's worn, not because of a minting error. Silver-alloy coins were softer than modern copper-nickel ones and they wore out a lot faster. That means it's only worth its silver value, about $2.75 as of 10/2009
A quarter is bigger than a nickle. Also, a quarter has ridges all around the edge whereas a nickel has smooth edges
If it is a totally blank planchet, look at the edge. If it already has a raised rim like a normal quarter, it's worth about $5. However if the edge doesn't have a rim, it's worth about $10.
I have a Canadian Dime 1980 with smooth edges too but have no idea how much it is worth
If this coin is in uncirculated condition it is worth $0.25, other wise it's worth $0.10.
No gold, I think what you see is the copper in the coin that shows on the edge.
The Philadelphia Mint hasn't produced silver coinage for circulation since 1964. A 2003-P state quarter is worth 25 cents.
Willow leaves are smooth-edged.
The most likely cause of a plain edge is that someone filed it down, or it was exposed to some kind of extra wear that affected the edge. That makes it a damaged coin worth only 25c, I'm afraid.
It islikely the obverse die was filled by grease or other crud when it was struck. A very common thing. as to value maybe a dollar.
a quarter has 130 grooves.
A nickel has a smooth edge. No ridges.
Yes, one dollar.
The 2006 quarter is composed of a core of pure copper with outer layers of copper-nickel. If there was truly no copper then there would be no coin. If the usual copper line is missing from the edge of the quarter it is not because there is no copper in it but because as the blank quarter was stamped out of the sheet of metal, the outer layers containing the nickel were "smeared" over the edge of the blank quarter by the cutting die and concealing the customary copper band. Scraping the edge of the coin would reveal the copper.
A quarter has 119 reeds.
Yes, 25 cents. It's either worn or someone had a file and too much time on their hands.
There are 119 reeds.
It's silver because its a centennial quarter and made of silver, Thus not painted and not depreciating the value. unfortunately out of a set it will usually only fetch around 10$ in an auction unless someone is desperate to finish their collection.
well if there are no letters on the edges it is at least worth $200. if there are no letters i suggest you send it to a coin grading company so they can guarantee it's authenticity. you can easily find them on the internet
It is a general-purpose bench plane used to smooth wood -- frequently to smooth the edge of a door that is sticking.
A US quarter is 24.26 mm in diameter, giving it an area on each face of 462.2441 square mm (A = pi * r^2). Is also 1.75 mm thick, meaning that the edge (assuming that it was smooth - that is, without giving effect to the increase area brought about by the 119 reeds on the reeded edge) would have an area of 133.3763 square mm (A = 2 * pi * r * h). Thus, the total surface area of a US quarter would be 1057.8645 square mm. A Canadian quarter is 23.81 mm in diameter, giving it an area on each face of 445.2548 square mm (A = pi * r^2). Is also 1.60 mm thick, meaning that the edge (assuming that it was smooth - that is, without giving effect to the increase area brought about by the reeds on the reeded edge) would have an area of 119.6821 square mm (A = 2 * pi * r * h). Thus, the total surface area of a Canadian quarter would be 1010.1916 square mm.
