1977 Washington Quarter Struck on 5C Planchet (5.0g) Mint Error; NGC AU-58

INV ID: 992

As described on the NGC label, this quarter was inadvertently struck on a planchet intended for a five cent piece (5.0 grams, solid copper nickel), instead of the normal three clad layer quarter planchet, which weighs a heavier 5.67 grams.  That is why you can see that it is a little smaller in diameter, and the edge does not show a copper core like a regular quarter does.
