I believe this is either a 1944 or a 1954 Silver Quarter, the strongest part of the date area looks like it supposed to be a 4 IMO but not sure. Struck on a tapered planchet, under weight about 1-Gram. Thanks for looking! Also it goes from 0.4 Mm to 1.2 Mm using a caliper











Thought I would add these, was trying to get better edge on pics...here is the thickest part



Here is leading between the thickest and thinnest part (There is paper between the toothpick and coin so I am not touching the coin with the toothpick and very light pressure...It is not flat so I pushed it flat onto the surface)



Here is the thinnest part.

That's a really neat looking piece, very nice! Strong and obvious to boot.

Thanks CoinHunter27! I'm glad to add it to my small collection, I have been trying to learn about underweight and tapered planchets and came across this on Ebay!

I'm not sure @ levels-One part of the edge/rim is as thick or just a bit thicker than a normal quarter and from there it tapers down around both sides to the weakest part. The reeding is weak at the thinnest point.

Looks more like a thinned planchet. Not the devices on the reverse that are there are inside the normal width of the planchet. Appears that most of the setup was present. But being too thin, did not fill out the rim. The thin struck areas show no rim. The full thickness areas do show a weak rim. So I'm thinking a thinned planchet error, underweight.

Why you compare the silver Quarter with an clad Quarter? Seem to be a tinny planchet. The silver Quarter was 6.3gr so you coin it is .8gr less (I take in consideration the circulation)
