Got this beauty out of a soda machine at work ! I have not weighed it yet. Will be going to coin shop today and see if grading would be prudent if it is indeed missing clad...fingers crossed !?!?

I've had a few of these in the past. It looks like environmental damage, not a missing clad layer. I don't see any weakness in the strike. If it is missing the layer your coin should weigh about 4.67 grams.

While I am certain it is environmental damage, it is best not to do destructive testing like scratching. Weighing it would be the best bet. Remember, the edge where you scratched it is where the copper core of the clad "sandwich" shows. Normally missing clad is only on one side. If it was missing on both sides leaving only the copper core the coin would be very thin and underweight.

If you know a jeweler, or someone who reloads ammunition they could weigh it for you. If you plan on doing any coin searching a scale would be a good investment.

Here's the topic I posted back in October. It's a 1979 Washington quarter missing the obverse clad layer. It shows the weakness that is expected on this type of error.
