It's impossible to be missing a clad layer, the coin isn't clad to begin with.
Sorry for the bad news.
Like others have said, 1964 Kennedy half dollars are 90% silver and do not have a clad layer. Your coin has just become discolored a bit while in circulation. Here is what a clad Kennedy half dollar looks like missing the clad layer.
The Z knows what happened and he ain't tell'n....
No bad news! Honestly- it’s good news..... this means I got something right for a change! Lol! I didn’t think a silver coin could be missing a clad layer!! So, finally- looks like all my reading is starting to help!!! Lmao!!
I’ll keep it!! I found it in a bank roll about 5 years ago and like everything else- kept a hold of it!! I feel like the coins I really keep are the ones I consider art- which are prob worthless junk to most!!
Nice coin, btw! I have noticed a few copper colored dimes and quarters in my piles in the past. I’ve kept everything pretty much- I will have to have a look and see if they might be missing their clad layers! This is one error I haven’t even started to look into yet! I figured I would work on one error at a time, lol! Considering this is the hardest thing IN THE WORLD to figure out!!
Come on!! Share your smarts!!! Lmao!!
Hang in there and have fun with it. It's tough to find a true error coin.
Wish you had posted the photos Full Image for easier viewing.
I'm not thinking that coloration is damage as much as toning that has some "alternate attractiveness."
@Mountain Man , for your viewing pleasure . . . .
