I found this well circulated quarter in a roll of quarters. It doesn't have the normal color of a regular quarter and weighs 5.54 Grams. Just seeking out knowledge of what it could be and if worth getting graded. I am new at this and tried to capture the best photos that I could get. I appreciate any help that the forum can provide.

@Rkmcdaniel, those pics are fine. The weight seems to be close enough to the target weight of 5.67 g and the normal circulation wear and surface staining do not affect the value. I don't see a good reason to get this guy slabbed.

I agree about the weight and not getting it slabbed. That is less than 2.5% under.

I do like the blue effect on your images. It makes it easy to see the details in spite of the staining. I was hoping to see a "blue" closeup of the date.

Thanks.
That blue is really helpful for viewing, for me anyway.
