    This is definitely for my education. Would love to get opinions. I have a few more questions but I'm trying to pace myself o_O

    Thanks. I do have a Bombay Hook that is 100% a lamination but this type has had me curious yet pessimistic. I do appreciate the response and will know what to look for.

    Your 1993 Cent was minted on a Copper Plated Zinc Planchet. The edge took a hit during circulation which affected the copper plating and exposed the inner zinc.

    The examples of true Laminations occur on copper planchets Cents minted before 1983.

    1982 was the last year they made Copper Cents.

    Please show your Bombay Hook.. Whatever that is o_O

    Afraid to say it’s all PMD. Please post your Bombay Hook Quarter. Welcome to CT.

    Ok let's see if I'm right. I believe it's a retained lamination but am very open to other's opinions

    It looks like it was dinged and removed a thin layer of metal and then deposited it in a line. PMD

    I have to say PMD as u it t appears to have been struck and the metal was scraped and pushed into a line. Here is one of my examples of a lamination.
    88AA5034-8561-42AC-A19C-7E3480DFA261.jpeg 999A2E5E-A08F-4DFB-A0B1-47BEC942E96F.jpeg It’s a retained lamination. You can easily see the tears and no straight lines. I can even slip a piece of paper under the peeling portion.
    Here is another one of mine. You can see the peeling taking place in the field in front of Lincoln’s nose.
    I included this but it’s a struck through on the rim. You can see how the rim reacted. Nothing like your coin on the rim even though this one is a struck through.
