I have two 1966 dimes and one is significantly darker than the other. Is there any way to tell for sure if it's missing clad? The photos aren't the greatest but they're both in very nice condition so I don't think it's worn/dirty to this degree...

The dark coin spent some time out doors. If you carry it in your pocket for a time, the silver color will come back to the tops of the devices.

Most likely indoors buried in a hole in dirt.

If missing a layer, the weight would be a bit less. Also usually just one sided loss, will cause a "soft strike" appearence, have softer incomplete detail since plancet may have been thinner when stamped,depend when clad CAM off, pre or post strike. This quarter lost it pre-strike.

Yours looks like it has the same darker color on both sides so, chances are it's environmental damage. As mentioned, if it were missing a clad layer, or both outer layers, the weight would be under spec.

Like coop said, carry it in your pocket for a while and see if the silvery color comes back on the raised devices.

OK it'll be a pocket piece for awhile to see what happens. I'll post again if it stays dark in colour.

Thanks for all the help!
