Is this a specimen without clad layer, or what exactly is causing this discoloration?
Gratefully submitted.

Could this particular coin be displaying a form of clashing?

I think the glad is there. yellow color on nickel can come from different sources.

Please can you post a photo from side? to see the rims? This will tell about the clad.

Appears to be toning to me. Not an error.

Something in its environment is causing this. Even we are affected by our environment. We just put up with or try to avoid some surroundings. Coins don't have that choice. They are victims of there surroundings.

Looks like typical Ike toning to me. Ikes seem to like that golden tone.

It also looks like something was "protecting" the bottom part of the obverse from being affected by the environment.

For a quick comparison, here's a link to an Eisenhower Bicentennial Dollar that is definitely missing its clad layer on the reverse:

- Bicentennial Clad Layer Missing Errors

PS See my note about coin weights in the discussion for another way to determine if you have a true clad-layer missing coin.


Thanks for sharing your Ike dollar!

Here is what a missing cladding would look like:

Note the devices on both sides are weaker because of the missing clad layer. That thin layer affects the missing clad coins.

This may be true for many clad-layer missing coins, but not all. For example:



The link I provided above includes images of the Bicentennial quarter and half dollar also.

Bicentennial Eisenhowers that came in uncirculated sets packaged by the mint often show considerable light 'gold' toning. Usually the toning is rather even, yours appears blotchy on the obverse. I have a couple dozen '76 Ikes with strong gold toning, taken directly from government packaging.
