US Seated Liberty Dollar (Counterfeit) 1963
Hi Tony -- There is a known counterfeit 1963 seated liberty silver dollar. It is a strange date to counterfeit since, as you say, no coins were minted with that date. Check this link and see if your coin matches: The Black Cabinet at Numismetrica.
There are some zoomed pictures on the Black Cabinet website which show some scuffs and marks always found on these counterfeits.
Counterfeits are worth zero, unless you can find a collector who is willing to buy them. Most collectors shun counterfeit coins.
If your coin does not match this one, and has a correct weight of 27 grams. it may be a coin tooled to look like a different date. If it does not match this one, but does not have the correct weight, it is another counterfeit.
CoinQuest thanks Numismetrica for use of their coin photo.

Requester description: 1963 HELLO. I CAME ACCROSS A SEATED LIBERTY LADY SILVER DOLLAR DATED 1963, INSTEAD OF 1863. BUT, ACCCORDING TO THE INFORMATION RECEIVED THERE WERE NO SUCH COIN MINTED ON THAT YEAR. THE COIN LOOKS FINE AS FAR AS WEIGHT, SILVER CONTENT, DIAMETER, ETC... COULD IT BE A MISS PRINT?
