    Newbie69 Doesn't make cents!

    Would this fall under a planchet error (Lamination error) or something else?
    Don't think I need to explain what we are looking at! Lol IMG_20201028_022654753_HDR~2.jpg IMG_20201028_022545503_HDR.jpg IMG_20201028_022319993_HDR~2.jpg IMG_20201028_022422746_HDR~2.jpg IMG_20201028_022230027_HDR.jpg IMG_20201028_022402801_HDR.jpg

    Neat!
    Lamination to the Copper plating. IMHO.

    They're really not laminations - NGC got that one wrong.


    They are copper plating bubbles or blisters...has nothing to do with
    metal mixture problems.

    as fred said copper platting not bonded well to the core of the coin that is what causes those bubbles which your coin has

    I think the grading services should ban errors altogether on Crappy Zincolns.

    Because they are all Crappy. They surpassed the Susie B. as the Mint's biggest blunder.

    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.

    Oldhoopster It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    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.
