1970 D quarter weighs 5.45 grams

Hi, my name is Ginny and I have been collecting coins for years.

I have a 1970 D quarter that weighs 5.45grams. Could this be on a wrong planchet or is the weight within the tolerance weight?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Thank you

It's a little under-weight bit it is circulated and not enough to add a premium.

Thank you for all your help. I have a lot to learn. Is there video on the tolerance weight for each coin?
