    Looking for some info on a coin I found the other day. I’ve looked online and it appears to be similar to others that r said to hv the clad layer missing, but I’m new to this coin collecting thing so would appreciate all the help I can get! Will try to get a better pick soon.

    Your coin has some type of environmental damage. It is not missing a clad layer.

    How do you tell the difference if you don’t mind me asking?

    If it were missing a clad layer, the color would be copper. I can still see some of the cladding. Soak it in some water for a couple of days and see what it looks like

    Missing clad layer would be on one side. It would weigh less, and the copper would look like this members coin. It is a textbook example, but that makes it easier to see the difference. The other side of this coin is your normal silver color. Environmental damage is just a dirty rusted coin on both sides, and generally has been buried in the ground for a time and then recovered.

    Environmental damage. Members who search with metal detectors often report buried coins that look like yours.

    Environmental damaged so it is worth twenty five cents.

    PS. It looks as if you found it which is what you stated.
