Do clad quarters have silver and how do you tell?

No, clad is used in the coin collecting community talking about the Copper and Nickel "sandwich" current, non-silver, coins have. So a clad quarter by definition would not have any silver because a clad quarter is a quarter with no silver. However, quarters were made of silver before 1965 so any quarter dated 1964 and earlier contains 90% silver, but those coins would not be considered "clad".

What is a 1964 clad quarter worth?

It is unlikely that you have a clad 1964 quarter, all quarters dated 1964 should be 90% silver, not the copper-nickel clad of 1965-present. Look on the rim of your coin, if it is a solid color (usually solid white but silver tones easily to different colors) it is silver, if it has a line of copper through it it is clad (compare it with a quarter from your pocket change). If it is clad, it is an error and worth quite a bit of money. If it is silver it is worth about $6 for the silver content.

Does a clad coin stick to a magnet?

"clad" coins with little or no silver contentCorrectionIt depends on what the coin is made of. US clad coins are mostly copper, with a small amount of nickel to give them a silvery color. While pure nickel does stick to a magnet there's so much copper (about 92% overall) that the coins don't stick. Some German coins (pre-euro) were made of steel clad with cupronickel, and these coins did stick to magnets.
