I just found a 1970 D Quarter that weighs 4.3 grams, its extra thin. It has a possible attempted cut, what confuses me is the Obverse, How did the tip of the 7 make it so far over to the left. Please take a look and let me know what you think. I think its on an Dime Planchet.

Likely struck on a Dime stock, but the damage will greatly reduce the value. The Damage I am referring to is the large gash on the obverse and reverse, going through the 7 of the date and the last S of STATES. This damage caused the metal of the 7 to be shifted over to the left a little bit. Still an error find!

Wouldn't a dime planchet (much thinner than a quarter) be lightly struck due to the height it has lying flat in the collar during a strike?

The damage to the coin makes it into a cull coin. Too bad. Why do people do that?
