I'm a fanatic about weighing coins. So far the coins have all been about the same. Washington quarters are 5.61Grams give or take a tad


Tonight I weighed a 1970D quarter at 5.46g
And a 1996D at 5.80grams
Any input?

Let me rephrase that, quarters for me usually run 5.61-7.0 grams

Looking at the info in John1's link (tolerance of +- .19 gram), the 1996d seems to be within tolerances and the '70d just barely within tolerance once you factor wear into it.

Second opinions are always recommended. Rookies thoughts!
Two sides to every coin. The edge makes three.
Side Note: Sometimes I feel like a nut, sometimes I don't.
