*** Edited by Staff to Add Year / Mintmark / Denomination to Title. Titles are Important! ***

Going through some teen wheats, and stumbled upon this guy. I assume it's a lamination error based on my time here on the forum. But wanted to run it by my dear friends.

@MF, my first thought is that this is a lam, but I'll be interested to hear what others say about this one. We recently had a coin posted on CCF with what may have been a lamination, but still had details of the design under peeled away layer. This one seems to have a similar look.

The strike is nice so maybe lam peel from a planchet then struck?

I'm thinking more like struck through or some type of planchet problem. Show both sides of the coin when you post.

Yes, I agree with lamination - usually you will have the details visible once the lamination has peeled away. It also appears to be a "Woody" - aka incorrect alloy mix.

When you have a "Greaser" - grease filled die you would not be able to see the details.

Also, as Fuzzy mentioned about your topic title - I do a lot of research on the coins and having all the specifics in the Title really helps me locate what I need.

Agree, lamination.

I've gone through my entire junk box of 1916-D cents in the last few weeks, and I'm always amazed at just how bad the copper alloy and planchets were on these coins.

Yep a error combination. It's a Improper Alloy Mix and a Lamination error. I think Improper Alloy Mix errors can cause Lamination errors.

Not necessarily an Improper Alloy, but improper mixing. This is indeed a lamination (or delamination) error. The peel will most often not remove all vestiges of the devices underneath. That would require a very deep flaw in the alloy.

Many times, the expected devices will be affected in a very minor way. I think this is what is seen here.

I feel this is a lamination. Why? But note the motto still shows through. If this were a struck through error, changes are it would have removed the ghost letters. It is in line with the woody affect of the coin. The coin looks like it was polished and even the peel area looks like it was polished a bit weakening the lines that were present there. Still a nice coin that would be a great hole filler until you get a better example. But still an error to hang onto.
