Assuming you mean a quarter that is normally struck, but is missing the outer silvery-colored layer ... If it is a state quarter, these have been selling in the $300-$400 range. If it is an older quarter, these have been selling for about $50

A 1944 copper misprint wheat penny is worth 1,000,000 dollars.

On average, it is worth 25 cents. If it is a misprint or error, it can go for up to $10.

It is very very rare for a solid copper quarter worth maybe $800 +

the misprint will increase the value, but not by much. the coin is most likely worth $12

another part of a coin was pressed into the quarter

Quarters from 1983 are still worth 25 cents.

It is worth nothing. You could try and take the two headed coin to a coin expert. But it is just a misprint.

It's worth a quarter because we trust the economy and believe it to be a quarter. Although the physical value is not worth a quarter, it's still worth a quarter. So no you're not getting ripped off.

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 depends on what you mean by "misprint" post new question.

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.

Yes, in 1965 some coins were made like that, in error, of course. A blank planchet from 1964 was stamped in 1965, resulting in a silver 1965. It's also possible that the coin was plated. Get a good scale; a silver quarter weighs about 6.25 gm while a plated copper-nickel quarter would weigh about 5.7 gm. FWIW, it wouldn't be a "misprint" though, it would be a "mis-strike". Bills are printed, coins are struck or minted.

It's not and error just one of the U.S. Territories Quarters for 2009

This is called a 'Lamination' error and a statehood quarter with this error is worth $50.00.

no there was never a copper quarter

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.

The quarter may be worth something depending on the ear it was minted. You can take the coin to a collector and have them appraise the quarter.

It depends on what you mean by the wrong way. But misprint coins are worth a lot more than regular coins. Fmv .25-$500 like I said before it depends on how misprint is. And also the us mint mark. If from a proof set you got real treasure
