A 25-cent piece. NOT a combination of coins equaling 25 cents.
An in-law family member asked if anyone had any 'case quarters,' as he wanted to go to a do-it yourself car wash where the machine would accept only 25-cent pieces. That family has been in the Alexandria, Virginia area since 1763.

In the old days people used dollar coins. Some times they would cut them into 4 parts. (2 bits 4 bits). If someone wanted a dollar coin that was not in pieces, they would say "case dollar".This got refreshed several years ago. When some one walks up to you and they say, "Yo, you gots a case quarter?" most of the time they will have 2 dimes and 1 nickle.
A kid walks up to the person working in an arcade and ask "Yo, you gots a case quarter?" They need a quarter to put into a token machine so they can play a game.

When I worked at a Miami, Florida arcade in 1982, the kids would ask for a "cased quarter" when they needed a quarter in exchange for two dimes and a nickle. The arcade games only accepted quarters. "The Amusement Center at the Omni Hotel" on Biscayne Blvd mostly catered to the local urban kids, and they were the ones that used the slang. I thought it was great and it made my job easier, too! I see that "case quarter" is listed, but my experience was with "cased quarter" with a d, the kids explained to me that the dimes and nickles were "cased" into one coin.
"Can I get a cased quarter please?"

Much easier than "Can I have a quarter for two dimes and a nickle please"

A single American coin made of silver amounting to 25 cents or a quarter of a dollar.

A quarter is often incorrectly used to describe 25 cents whether it is 5 nickles, two dimes and a nickel or twenty five pennies.

A case quarter designates 25 cents as that which is manufactured as a single coin or a case.
