How to seperate silver quarter vs copper/nickel with magnets

Postby notly1988 on August 15th, 2018, 10:25 pm 

I am looking to find out how to use magnets to separate silver/nickel quarters from the copper nickel quarters using magnets??

I know that most of the metals in these are not magnetic so to speak, but my knowledge is very limited (at best) in this area.

Is there a way to either attract or repel one quarter vs the other using a higher strength magnet? (if that is the correct terminology?)

I think there are different types and strengths of magnets and i need some help please and thank you!

If anyone has any advice please assist. Any direction would be great, the searches i have done so far yield very little info.

Thanks again!

P.S. please let me know if i am off on any of my thoughts thus far..
