First you must make sure it's not just copper plated -- which is worthless. If you truly have an unfinished planchet error, these have been selling in the $20 to $50 range.

A quarter never had 25 cents worth of copper in it. Quarters used to be made of roughly 25 cents worth of silver, but are now made of mostly copper due to cost reasons. The fact remains that a quarter is still worth 25 cents, and if you should so wish you could go and buy 25 cents worth of copper with it (a little more than two ounces of copper). Sorry I ment to say a quarter used to have 25 cents worth of silver in it now it has 2 cents worth of copper are you getting ripped off? I will reenter the question. Thanks.

It's a novelty item worth couple of cents for the gold plating plus whatever the underlying quarter is worth. If the quarter is copper-nickel, then it's only worth a quarter. If it's a special silver "prestige" quarter made in San Francisco it's at least worth maybe $3.50 for its metal content.
