    The 1976 Philly type 2 is the most common.
    Are you saying this is supposed to be a 1976-S 40% silver, and the S is missing?
    Then it would have to be a proof, this looks like a business strike.

    There were mint sets of 40% silver uncirculated Bicentennial Quarters, Halves & Dollars in addition to the proofs.

    What does the edge look like, as well as the weight?

    Welcome to CT!!

    As stated this looks more like a 1976P type 2 Ike. Photos of the edge and weight of the coin are needed.

    I believe @Michael K may have been referring to the ONE and ONLY 1976 Silver No S Type 2 Eisenhower Dollar ever found. This is a Proof. It was found in 1977 and is considered one of the rarest non error modern coins in existence. Ranking #4 on the PCGS' "Top 100 Modern Coins" Registry set.

    The guide I was looking at showed the Type 1 and Type 2 1976-S to be proof only,
    and the 40% silver in business and proof to be Type 1 only. It's a bit confusing.

    Clad Composition Resumed (1971-1978)
    1976 P Type 1 - Low Relief - Bold Lettering 4,019,000
    1976 P Type 2 - Sharp Design - Delicate Lettering 117,337,000
    1976 D Type 1 - Low Relief - Bold Lettering 21,048,710
    1976 D Type 2 - Sharp Design - Delicate Lettering 82,179,564
    1976 S Type 1 - Low Relief - Bold Lettering 2,845,450
    1976 S Type 2 - Sharp Design - Delicate Lettering 4,149,730
    1976 S 40% Silver - Type 1 - Low Relief - Bold Lettering 11,000,000
    1976 P 40% Silver - Type 2 - No "S" - Unique 1

    32 different coins in 8 years - throw in the blue and brown issues & you will definitely get some confusion trying to acquire all of them - OR you can just buy the whole shebang in a Dansco album, ready to admire :rolleyes:

    I believe this is the same coin as I was referring too. Not sure why usacoinbook.com doesn't mention it being a proof though. According the them it is owned by the same gentleman and when you look at their photo and the PCGS photo I posted a link to in my earlier post, you can clearly see the big dot and the 2 little dots to the left of the bell on both photos.

    I must say though if it weren't for those dots on both photos there would be no way you could convince me these are the same coin. What a drastic difference between the 2 photos. Funny thing is both photos came from PCGS themselves.

    picture of the "edge"
    as in the other side that isn't the front nor the back.

    By looking at the edge you can possible see it's basic composition.
    A Silver one will not have a copper layer. Whereas a clad one will normally have a silver and copper layer looking edge (sometimes it may not).
