  1. I know it's not full on copper oh how lights play cruel joke. I am wondering if the missing clad(?) improves my quarters collect ability more then say a missed or double stamp etc. And if so what would a fair price be to due business. Second has there ever been a copper quarter?

    If your coin is missing the clad layer, it does increase it's collector value. Do you have the means to weight you coin to see if it is underweight?
     
  4. I don't have a scale or a Popsicle stick..any other suggestions? Would a hand dangle work?

    rickmp Frequently flatulent.

    Both of those coins look like they spent a part of their lives underground. They are not all copper or missing clad layers, they are environmentally damaged. They have been exposed to a corrosive environment.

    Are you saying that a coin that is missing a clad layer is not worth more than a normal coin?

    Not at all and that's what I couldn't figure out with that post . A BU is worth 300 dollars ...

    Because of his quote: " If your coin is missing the clad layer, it does increase it's collector value " . My bad ........

    Depending on the denomination also. A Half Dollar with missing clad layer would be worth much more than a Quarter and a Dime missing the clad.

  17. How else could I tell? I know the black looking one isn't what I'm looking for but and comparison of two 1982 D...I'm a clerk so I see a lot of coins I'm firm that the one in question isn't just environmentally beat up. Slap me if you have to. Lol I'm a quick learner....Sorry bout the typographical errors

    I'm not saying this is what going on, but, when the planchet goes through the oven, sometime the copper core will, and can show through .

    That's called Improperly Annealed

    Correct. Exposure to the elements will do this.
    Sand, soil, dirt, water, chemicals are all factors in affecting the clad layer.
