Not a huge lam but the placement makes this one stand out. Seeing the date and MM partly in and partly out makes this fun to look at.

Great photos. I like the look of those small but significantly placed lams.

Glad it wasn't on a Variety coin. A variety collector would view this as a problem coin and an error collector would not care to offer more it is were a variety. So in the case, I'm glad it wasn't a variety coin. (Two types of collectors for these if it were a variety, but it doesn't add an additional premium for both if that were the case)

Nice one!

On a side note, this is known as a lamination, not a de-lamination. I personally think that de-lamination is a better identifier, but lamination is the accepted term for this in the numismatic world.

Thanks again for the comments, yes Yokozuna, I am aware of the dueling defining terms of this error and so I try to use both whenever I post one :)

...because that is exactly what is happening...the planchet material when it was being made had impurities that didn't allow for it to properly "laminate" (think atomic layers)...the subsequent pulling apart of this material is correctly defined as "de-lamination"...

Think of a 1960's table top that has "Formica" brand laminate, laminated (the process of joining together) to the substrate with contact cement...When pieces on the edge pull of, they are termed to have de-laminated...can happen with wood veneers also.

That is the term I will always use...the correct one...whether anyone else uses it or not.
