Having trouble discerning the errors on this coin, appears to be missing clad layers on both sides, and has something round stuck in the middle of it, can see the bulge from both sides. Any help would be most appreciated, thanks.

to CCF. Looks like it was heated like in a campfire. Not an error, PMD.

Nothing there that could happen during the striking of the coin.
Just damage, still worth 25 cents though.

I'm thinking it's worth 50 cents. Given the photos above, I'm seeing post strike damage--quite possibly heat related, with reaction to environmental agents the coin may have been exposed to. Might be a blunt force caused bump in there too. Could we get larger, sharp images of the while obverse and reverse?

at least 50 cents I would think even with the PMD it sustained

Normal but well worn 1974 that looks to have been in the ground at some point.

No edge reeding is indicative of the coin being circulated in slot machines at one time, the rest, as mentioned is due to environmental damage,could have been in fire or metal detector find. It's a spender.
