    MISSING CLAD ,I read up on it a bit.. i cannot confirm or deny that it is legitimate,I need your help.
    It doesn't looks cleaned or anything to me,it appears to have some nice patina as well
    My concerns.....
    1.The weight is spot on,not sure if it should be or not.
    2. I've never seen both sides missing,its usually 1 side or the other.

    It matches the characteristics of every example I've read about and seen so far,may I ask what is the detourant? And what is the explanation for the thin Planchet

    and try to re weigh them with something heaver in between the two weights. And the coin prob had a acid bath.

    I have to disagree on the acid bath.

    What was the determinating factor here? I'm trying to understand why this wouldnt be considered,it looks alot like a real one.

    This tells you that it is not missing any of the clad layer. The coin is just toned.

    It may be a thin planchet error, but it doesn't look like a missing clad error to me. I only have a quarter specimen to compare to, but my specimen is uncirculated.

    Looks like the coin is toned.

    Wouldnt a toned coin still show atleast a sign of the clad layer on the rim?

    I'm not trying to force the issue here,I'm honestly trying to understand. @Fred Weinberg thoughts

    No not necessarily. Have you not looked at quarters and halves before? Sometimes you see more (or less) of the clad layer.

    I have,I am familiar with what it is supposed to look like,this one shows no signs all around it. And is noticeably thinner than the normal dime I am comparing it to
