Lamination to the Copper plating. IMHO.
Well you tell that to NGC!
From my collection
They are copper plating bubbles or blisters...has nothing to do with
metal mixture problems.
Haha.. That's what I figured. I just like messing with everyone here
I think the grading services should ban errors altogether on Crappy Zincolns.
Why is that? Do you not like Zincolns?
This is something u see in a foundry when the metals to hot or cold n dnt bond right
Where have you been? You know quite a bit about coins
Because they are all Crappy. They surpassed the Susie B. as the Mint's biggest blunder.
Are you being serious or sarcastic..? Just bc it says new member dnt mean were plain dumb to the world..
Does ANYONE like Zincolns?
There are no reasons to like them at all! Excuse the bad photo, I shouldn't have been on my phone but you get the point.
I just haven't seen you around the forum... I was saying you're smart and I was wondering where you have been... I know you joined around the time I joined... We need people like you on this forum more often
Why haven't they found an alternative better metal? or heck even go back to copper? Then everybody would be happy.
Yes, sort of. A typical lamination is due to impurities and/or trapped air pockets that occurred during the original melt. The OPs coin is caused by a plating defect where the copper didn't stick to the zinc core due to some type of contamination (dirty blanks) as pointed out by others. It's due to the plating process, not the melting/alloying process. If the defect was under the surface of the zinc and occurred during the zinc casting process then it would be a lamination
BTW: I prefer the term delamination (along with some other members) as it better describes the defect, but that hasn't worked it's way into the hobby nomenclature yet.
Because they don't care what we think!
