That is actually incorrect. As 1964 and earlier quarters are silver.. It'd take a lot more quarters than that to melt to a value of $4 or more. The collector value is actually higher than the melt value.

Each 1964 quarter weighs 6.25 grams and only has 90% silver. That's only 5.625 grams of silver. A troy ounce is about 31.103 grams. Each troy ounce of silver is currently going for $20.74.

Those quarters are melting down at a percentage over $3.75

I have just one more thing to say on here OP,

If you find a quarter from 1916, it's worth over $1000. It also looks different, because the quarters with the heads on them started in like 1930-1931

what about pennies? i have a ton of old pennies
User avatar #4 to #2 - sewallman (06/23/2014) [-]
Pennies are less valuable materials, in today's market as well. Pennies weigh 2.3 grams each, and have more than just copper in them.

The collection value depends on the year and mint it was produced in. 1909 was the first year Lincoln pennies where released, and in 1909 certain pennies where marked with a VDB on them. Some unmint marked pennies will have the VDB on it from that year, but they are not worth nearly as much as the minted ones.

Goddammit people stop talking blatant ******** .

It's only illegal to melt pennies and nickels for scrap.

Also, unlike other people are saying, pre 1965 nickels have no silver.

This counts for all coins before 1965 (except pennies) because they were made with silver.

#45 to #43 - analfooter (06/23/2014) [-]
No, since melting the pennies would bring a profit to the melter.
