No mint errors, just a damaged coin. Spendable.

Well actually it's on a nickel planchet. And the damage looks like die clashes or poss metal flow to being under weight?

Yes, post strike damage--didn't leave the striking chamber in that condition. Not an error. In addition to other things, it appears intense heat may have been applied for a relatively short period of time. Perhaps intentionally by some one using a hobby-grade butane torch.

How can it not be an error if it only weighs 5 grams?

@wk, first welcome to CCF. Second, I'm glad that you are questioning why we think that your coin is damaged, as opposed to being a mint error, such as an off-metal strike. The weight is roughly in line for a quarter, considering that chunk out of the rim and too high to be a nickel. The bubbling that you see on George's neck and the eagle's wing is not from a previously struck coin, but rather the result of this coin being exposed to high heat. We sometimes call these "campfire coins".

Definitely been exposed to heat, it caused bubbling and some weight loss. The separation of the layers caused the different sound as well.

Note the clad copper layer on the edge of the coin. Note there's a rim on your coin. If you're coin were on a nickel, then it would not be a clad coin, not expand a form a bubble from heat on the design would not fit on the smaller planchet. This is a damaged quarter.

Significant figures are important here. When you say "5 grams" as opposed to say, 5.0 grams, that implies a balance measuring only to the nearest gram. A clad quarter would be around 5.67 grams. If a balance only measures to the nearest gram, it may very well show "5 grams" for a coin weighing 5.49 grams, for example. And that weight is completely within reason considering minting tolerances and a little circulation wear.
