### How much is a 100 1997 Franklin quarter pound silver proof worth?

This a a 4 troy ounce ingot in a particularly pleasing form. The
accurate answer is however much you can find a buyer willing to
pay. The value of the material is only part of the total value, and
fluctuates from minute to minute - as of the time I am responding
to the question (spot at US $27.01), the silver content (124 grams
or 4 troy ounces) is worth $108.04.
*Note that one fourth of a troy pound is approximately
93.4 grams (3 troy ounces). A troy pound is approximately 373
grams... 12 troy ounces. Silver is always measured and sold by TROY
weight. This is actually a third of a pound of silver, for any that
care...

### One pound of gold vs 1 pound of feathers?

This is a favoured trick question of teachers since time
immemorial, the joke is of course that they both weigh a pound, so
they both weigh the same.
The pounds and ounces that are used to weigh gold are a
different size from those used for everyday objects like
feathers.
Gold, along with other precious metal and gems, is weighed in
"Troy" ounces, everything else is weighed in avoirdupois ounces. A
troy ounce is bigger than a normal ounce. Troy ounces weigh 31.10
grams, whereas an avoirdupois ounce weighs 28.35 grams.
This means an ounce of gold is heavier than an ounce of feathers
by 2.75 grams.
But, while there are sixteen ounces in an avoirdupois pound,
there are only twelve ounces in a troy pound.
This means that a pound of feathers weighs 454 grams, and a
pound of gold weighs 373 grams. So that the pound of feathers is 81
grams heavier than the pound of gold.

### What weighs more a ton of feathers or a ton of gold?

> neither, they both weigh 2,000 pounds > > They both
weigh the same. They're both a ton. > The above is not complete.
Gold is measured using the Troy system of weights where the ounce
is heavier but there's less of them per pound. 1 Avoirdupois ounce
= 28.3 grams (Feathers) 1 Troy ounce = 31.1 grams (Gold) There are
12 Troy Ounces is a Troy Pound. There are 16 Avoirdupois Ounces in
a Avoirdupois Pound 453 grams in a Avoirdupois pound. 373 grams in
a Troy Pound So the Avoirdupois pound is heavier. a troy ton is
2450 troy pounds or 913 kg a Avoirdupois ton has 2 weights, the
short ton and the long ton. (note: in the US "short ton" is known
as ton and long ton is mostly unused, also known as the imperial
ton) a short ton, 907 kg (2000lbs) a long ton is 1016 kg (2240 lbs)
So, a short ton of feathers weighs less than a ton of gold, a long
ton of feathers weighs more than a ton of gold. Fun times. Unless
of course you're referring to the metric ton which is 1000 kg (2205
lbs). In which case they are the same weight.
