How come this 25c doesn't have a copper rim on the edge?

    Obverse photo please.

    Paper money eventually returns to its intrinsic value. Zero. Voltaire

    Waste of time. Not a serious question without photos of the obverse and reverse.

    I found one of these once that I put away somewhere....can’t remember which state quarter it was.
    I showed it to a couple dealers and was told it was quite common, but don’t recall the explanation for it.

    Try the "Poorman's" specific gravity test: Take a razor blade and under magnification scratch the edge parallel to the reeding. You should see copper. These edges with no copper showing are not rare.

    This is not uncommon.... but no added value.... Cheers, RickO

    As mentioned above it is a plated coin.

    Actually, except for the edge (which happens like this on occasion) the coin looks perfectly normal to me. I see absolutely NO EVIDENCE of a plated surface.
