About 1965 Washington Quarters
Most serious coin collectors know that 1965 marked an important change within the U.S. currency system. After years of silver quarters, 1965 Washington quarters appeared, comprised of nickel and copper. This is the same composition as our 25-cent piece has today, but 1965 Washington quarters obviously hold special historical significance. There is a vast inventory of 1965 Washington quarters available on eBay, making it easy for avid collectors to track down individual coins or sets that their collections may be missing. You might enjoy a 1965 Washington Quarter set that includes a 1965 quarter, along with quarters from subsequent years. You may also come across a rare 1965 Washington quarter with a minting error. Coins with errors make exciting finds and can even be quite valuable. Most coins are sealed for protection, allowing them to remain in good condition as the years pass. Your coin collection is not complete without a quarter from the year when production went through a major change as the U.S. started manufacturing the type of quarter that is still in use today.
