Found this coin that had some obvious color differences. The darker color is both on the the obverse, reverse, and edge. And it weighed at 4.76g. Initially I thought ED, but I'm not knowledgable enough to know if ED can bring the weight down like that. Anyone know what happened with this one?

Environmental damage (a lot like acid dipped coins) removes metal from the surfaces of coins, so it should reduce the weight.

It is also only about .04 grams out of tolerance. When you find one .4 grams out of tolerance then you have something.

Thank you for this info! Out of curiosity, do you know if there are resources to find weight tolerances of specific coins? For example, since the PCGS coinfacts lists the weight of this coin to 5g, i'd guess the tolerance of coin to be +/- 0.2g or 4% the coin's weight?

4% is about the largest the tolerance range gets and for many coins it is much smaller. The ranges of current coins can be found in the law Title 31 Chapter 25 section 5112. Tolerances of uncurrent coin can be found by combing through the Statutes at Large. OR all of them can be found brought together in one place in the Coin World Almanac by Amos Press. Copies can be found on abebooks.com for $7 and up. If you just want the tolerances drop me an email through the PM feature (click on my user name to get tom profile and select "send an email") and I'll send you a copy.
