Spoon or dryer or different planchet?

PppPpp Posts: 462 ✭✭✭✭

I have a 2022p quarter that weighs 5.11gms and has a diameter of 23.2mm

For reference:
-quarter should be 5.67 gms and 24.26mm diameter
-nickel should be 4.95 gms (weight of 2023p) and 21.2mm diameter

I say it’s a dryer coin.

Someone else says it is stamped on a nickel planchet.

Who is right?

    Not a nickel planchet, your right, it’s a dryer coin.

    If that's the case, where did the copper come from? And why is the rim rolled up to consume part of the details around the circumference?

    You are. 🏆

    "Someone" says it's a nickel planchet? "Someone" is wrong.
