    Description

    Washington Quarter on a
    Zinc-Coated Steel Cent Planchet

    Undated 25C Washington Quarter -- Struck on a Zinc-Coated Steel Cent Planchet, Environmental Damage -- NGC Details. AU. 2.6 gm. Standard weight of a steel cent is 2.7 gm. Only the very top of the date is present, but we suspect this is a 1944 Philadelphia quarter, since the top of the final digit is too narrow to be a 3. A lightly worn but granular silver-gray wrong planchet error with a few areas of intermittent dark gray verdigris. Peripheral legends are partial but the types are complete.
    From The Geyer Family Collection.
