Hello,
This 1964 Silver dollar has been with me for a while and I recently got into collecting and thought I would post it to see if anyone knows what kind of error this is.

Not a variety, just post mint damage and weird looking stains or toning :)

Thanks,
That line running through the center is raised and the staining is actually the copper layer under the Silver.
I think it's a Cladding error combined with a Die break,
could even be a strike through, don't know but it's definitely not post damage.

Silver dollars have no 'copper layer' nor are they cladded.

Wrong! Silver clad with a copper core.
80% Silver 20% Copper.
But, thanks for your input I appreciate it.

Even the American 1922 Peace Silver Dollar is 90% Silver and 10% Copper, so it is a Silver clad Coin.

Wrong again.

Only newer US coins, and certainly not Canadian silver coins, are cladded

Welcome!!

Canadian silver of this era was an alloy with 80% silver. There is no cladding or layering. Just an even alloy throughout. It looks to me like some
sort of environmental damage or chemical damage.

You see this stuff all the time. This is old tape residue, has ruined countless coins with people taping them into folders and for some reason the glue in the old tape would destroy the coin. Is usually from old packing tape or "scotch" tape.

I think everyone here covered nicely the difference between clad coins and just an alloy.

Soak the coin in Acetone and it should remove any residual tape reside. A soak in Acetone will not hurt this coin.

My non professional opinion is that small cents guy and Talonbat have completely and accurately identified the issue

It's like a coffee, you have a coffee with creamer, and for every 4 parts coffee, there is 1 part creamer.

Thanks a lot everyone for the info.
Sadly, I will lay this coin to rest and put it in my damaged coin collection.
