Value of 1965-1970s quarters?

I have a bunch of (US) quarters from 1965 to the mid-70s that sound and feel different than regular quarters. What are they? Are they worth more than face value?

I have a couple dozen quarters that I kept setting aside because they felt different and sound different from contemporary quarters if you drop them. I had assumed they were silver quarters. They're from 1965 to the mid-70s. My research indicates that silver quarters haven't been made since 1964, and that the same material has been used from 1965 to present... So why do these coins feel different? Are they worth more than 25 cents, or should I go ahead and use them in the laundromat?
