Coin and Paper Money Collecting/fat quarter

Question
I have a 1970 fat quarter. It has a bulge on both the front and back. How much would it be worth?

Answer
Hi Teri,
What you have is a quarter that is most likely delaminating.  There is the center copper core and the nickel outsides, think of a sandwich.
Sometimes they come apart for various reasons.
They are fun and collectible.  I suspect that current market right now is in the $15-25 range.
