Low Weight Clad Washington Quarter - Is This Anything?

Is this anything worth a premium? Weighs in at 4.3 grams. A worn 1971 quarter for comparison weighs 5.6 grams. It definitely has a higher pitch when hitting a hard surface. The color isn't as dark as the images, although it does have a tone to it. Thanks for any input!

    I think that is the year/mm that is known to have quarters struck on dime stock. (NOT dime planchets but rolls of dime stock from which quarter blanks were punched).

    I have one somewhere.

    The most common year to find a quarter struck on stock intended for dime production.

    Many of them entered circulation. A few have also been found in Mint sets. They’re still out there.

    Congrats on a cool error coin! I’d put it in the range of $40 - $75 depending on how dark it actually is in hand.

    That is a cool find.... Not sure it is worth slabbing, but certainly a keeper. Cheers, RickO
