Would have to know WHY it is copper. In the 1940's there was no copper core in the quarter, so it can't be a lamination error. If it was struck on a cent planchet, it would be obviously undersized and worth up to $150. If struck on a planchet intended for some foreign coin, it could be worth several hundred dollars but it would be very difficult to locate an interested collector. If it just has a copper color because a high school physics class was experimenting with electroplating (my class only used dimes and pennies) or has had a reaction to contact with some chemical it is still worth about $.75 to melt for the silver content.
