I came across a 1965 Washington quarter. It had approximately equal silver on both sides and copper in the middle. It had not been smashed. I asked some coin brokers if it was worth anything and they did not know. They had not seen it before, but said it was a true quarter. Does anyone know about this type or know of someone who might? Is it a flaw in the quarter?
Thanks !

It's hard to know without seeing it, but based on your interactions with a few coin dealers it sounds like you probably do have a mint error coin.

If you think about it, any production process involving both humans and machines is not going to produce 100% perfect results.

It's possible this is a Washington Quarter accidentally struck on a Jefferson Nickel planchet (which would have nickel on the sides and copper in the middle).

Here is an example of one of those from a different date:

It might be worth sending Fred a note and picture, and see what he says?

It's likely not super valuable but you never know.
