    Very Rare 90% Silver 1965 Quarter, XF45

    1965 25C Washington Quarter -Struck on a Silver Quarter Planchet- XF45 PCGS. Breen-4416. Breen called this error variety "extremely rare." A transitional planchet error, similar to the 1943 copper Cent or the 1977-D Ikes struck on silver-clad planchets. Silver quarters dated 1964 and clad quarters dated 1965 were both struck during 1965, and inevitably, a 90% silver planchet apparently lodged within a bin that was later filled with clad planchets destined for 1965-dated dies. This piece circulated for a while before a sharp-eyed collector noted that the edge did not reveal any clad layers.
    Ex: FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2004), lot 9789, which realized $5,750.
