    Hi all,
    I'm enjoying what I'm reading so far on this forum. Looks like some stand-up guys with some solid information and I am glad to be a part. Thank you for adding me as part of the group. I came across this coin about a year ago in my pocket change and actually forgot about it until the other day. Can anybody give me any information as far as two is this actually missing clad or what is going on with the coin? Any advice criticism comments excetera it appreciated and I thank you in advance for it...... and don't worry I have many many more coins that I am curious to find out some more information lol

    Respectfully,
    RustJunky

    The Cupro-Nickel clad layer has copper in it. When exposed to the elements it will tone into a darker color. True missing clad layer errors are usually just on one side of a clad coin. Yours looks like Environmental toning.

    Here are some of my metal detected coins that were affected and turned dark. I once had hundreds from my metal detecting hunts. I put them all into a Coinstar Machine. About $1000.00 worth. You probably ended up with one of my finds!

    Even Nickels turn a darker color as you can see in the last picture.

    Here are true missing clad layer mint errors from my collection..
    Just on one side. The other side is perfect -

    Yeah I was reluctantly awaiting that response. And the only reason that I even posted it was because I have lots of coins of environmental damage nature and this is nothing like any of those. The luster and the obvious lack of being in the environment and the sharpness of the detail still present in the image makes me want to argue the point. But of course I really don't know my butt from the hole in the ground LOL when it comes to coins but this is obviously to me at least not and environmental damage coin. The color is almost identical to the 1999-p dime pictured above. I don't have the best camera so it may not be showing through as accurately as I'm describing it. Then again I could just be totally wrong and not know what I'm talking about so I'll try to take a couple more pictures and see if that doesn't do better. Thanks for the prompt responses so far

    It is not uncommon for someone to think they have a rare error, but it happens all the time. So before you go wasting your time just weigh the coin. It will give you all the answers you need.

    There's nothing about any of the ed coins you posted or I have here that is even in the same sport as this quarter, much less the same team :)to my untrained eye.... of which I actually only have one.o_O
    And by the way I was mistaking it is a 1969 D not s sorry for that. Phone auto corrected.
    But this quarter it almost looks like it's never really been in change very much much less been exposed to Environmental damage of any sort. Please correct me if I'm wrong. Thanks again guys

    What about the area around ERTY? Does that help indicate anything?

    I guess my question now is.... would the quarter that you just showed digging up clean up as brilliantly and show no scratches like the one that I posted?

    And I'm not doubting you. Just trying to get a better understanding of what I'm looking at and that way I'll know what I see when I see it.

    Wow! @Rust_junky did you weigh the coin? Or do you wat to just argue about your coin?

    First, let me say that I've owned the coin below ever since I found it in a Mint bag some 16 years ago. It has never been in circulation. Here you go, @Cheech9712 ! This is what an uncirculated coin missing a clad layer should look like. The color is accurate and has not been "Photoshopped".

    Now, when I look at your coin in the group photos of your Post #8, I can clearly see whitish-colored highlights on some of the high points of the coin on both sides. If this coin was truly missing the clad layers, it would not look like this. I have to conclude that your coin has discolored while in circulation. ~ Chris

    I'm just in case you missed my last post, I stated that I was not doubting him I was trying to get a better understanding of what to look at and what I see when I see it. As it stands currently I have no way to weigh the coin so no I have not weighed it. But I appreciate your input thank you

    Thank you so much for your informative answer. I think a lot of the questions that some of us new guys have could be easily cleared up much more efficiently if we could get responses such as is with a caparison coin to actually look at and see the differences in what we think we see vs. What we want to see if you get my drift. Thanks again
