In preaparation for the switch to cupro-nickel clad coinage, the U.S. Mint changed the reverse design for the Washington Quarter. This design is found on most 1965 washignton quarters. AKA the Type C reverse design, and simmilar to the Type B reverse, the arrowheads and leaves directly to the left of the arrowheads on the reverse were given a higher relief and much sharper detail.
