Default I like laundry day

Sorting through the quarters and I found these two little gems:




The US quarter is from 1963. The Canadian quarter is from 1959. Silver just sounds so good klinking together!

wow, thats one of the oldest CND quarters I have ever seen, its not to uncommon to find really old nickles and pennies, but quarters, not so much.

Both are common-dates, so they are worth....oh, about a quarter each. Especially in circulated condition. Might be more valuable as metal, but I think they are silver ALLOY, not pure silver. I can't recall when the alloy coins started. Still, pretty neat to find them out in circulation!

I figured that they were probably high mintage. Still cool though. From a casual coin collector stand point, it'* a pretty rare find. I'm actually collecting any coins from the 60'* and back. The way I look at it, before too long all those coins will be hard to come by too.

1963 was the last year of pure silver quarters and dimes in the US (not sure about CND coins). Worth about $1.50'ish a couple weeks ago when I checked their value in terms of silver weight.
I have been filtering through coins in the cash drawer at work when I close-out and over the past few months and have managed to pull about 5 pre-1964 quarters and half a dozen pre-1964 dimes. Straight swap with my newer quarters and dimes and my boss said he doesn't care as they'd never catch em.

Yeah, I've got a 1963 quarter somewhere around here....I didn't even notice till i just happen to drop it and a couple others when i was about to use it...when it hit the floor i'm like, you're KIDDING. obviously wasn't copper.

i've got quite a few coins here. wonder if they're worth anything
