    Hey, the next best thing to finding a US 1806 Draped Bust quarter, is finding a counterfeit US 1806 Draped Bust Quarter.
    I managed to dig a counterfeit Barber half years ago, and it's displayed to show off to people.
    Kudos!

    Well it was drilled which is common practice back then. That may also account for the lower weight. Take it to a coin dealer and have them test the silver content.

    Contemporary Counterfeit most likely. Excellent recovery.
