I'm new to coin collecting/searching and I could use some help(in more ways than just this post). I found this 1980P Dime that definitely caught my eye as "different". I'm color blind so I'm not quite sure if this is missing one or both clad layers. It weighs 2.2g. It also looks like there some doubling. I still am having trouble distinguishing between Machine Doubling and hub doubling. Any insight would really be appreciated...

Does the edge show the same color or can you see a darker copper core? The color in you images seems to change from picture to picture, so I can't say for sure. Most coins that have a clad layer missing are underweight and lack some detail, but it is possible.

So I'mástill trying to figure out a proper setup for consistent lighting/picture taking...not sure the best way of taking a picture of the ridge but here's what I came away with...

So the rim is uneven but it appears that there is a slim amount of nickel on the obverse and a marginal amount more on the reverse side...would that thin amount produce a copper field with silver(nickel) features? Depending on what aspect my phone focused on, that color would be accentuated in the photo




I guess I couldve posted the images in the middle..eh, if that's the worse thing that happens today, I'll be alright...

Would quick like to say I really appreciate the help with walking me through this...I work in a restaurant and continually get a lot of coins and bills...just recently looked up some distinctive older Lincoln cents, found myself way out of my depths, but hooked on learning as much as I can, so thank you, really.

The missing clad on a coin should be a stark noticeable event on a coinL

Note the partial missing clad on this coin. The color difference will be as strong as the red on a copper cent.



The strike on these can be weak because of the missing thickness of the metal.

Never a good idea to hold your coins in your fingers like that. Oils from your skins can destroy any numismatic value your coin may have. A better strategy is to photograph your coins while laying them on a hard surface and photograph them directly from above. And/or, purchase inexpensive cotton gloves from anywhere that sells hobby supplies.
