Would have to know WHY it is copper. In the 1940's there was no copper core in the quarter, so it can't be a lamination error. If it was struck on a cent planchet, it would be obviously undersized and worth up to $150. If struck on a planchet intended for some foreign coin, it could be worth several hundred dollars but it would be very difficult to locate an interested collector. If it just has a copper color because a high school physics class was experimenting with electroplating (my class only used dimes and pennies) or has had a reaction to contact with some chemical it is still worth about $.75 to melt for the silver content.

If it's so worn that you can't make out the year, it's only worth its metal content. If it's an old silver coin, it might be worth $2.50 or so as scrap. If it's a modern copper-nickel quarter that is that worn down, it's only worth a quarter.

If you mean it has no Mintmark, value depends on the year it was struck.

Imagine you have 2 different types of bonds:Compound:Let's say bond value is £100 and you get 4% quarterly interest on this investment.Your bond value after one quarter will be:Bond Value=£100Interest Earned: 4%=£4Total Value=£104After 2nd quarter, the bond value would be:Opening Value from quarter 1=£104Interest Earned: 4%=£4.16Total Value=££108.16After 3rd quarter, the bond value would be:Opening Value from quarter 1=£108.16Interest Earned: 4%=£4.33Total Value=££112.49After 4th quarter(or after a year), the bond value would be:Opening Value from quarter 1=£112.49Interest Earned: 4%=£4.50Total Value=££116.99SimpleBond Value=£100Interest Earned=16%(because it's 4% per quarter and there are 4 quarters in a year)=£16Total Bond Value=£116so bond value after a year is more under Compound than it is under Simple interest bond.The reason is because simple interest is calculated on one single figure while compound interest is calculated over the opening figure of month,quarter or year.So compound interest gives more interest income and hence it's better than simple interest bond.
