I swooped this for 1$ on ebay. I expected to just get a coin with glue on it..but I took a shot in the dark because it looked to have a very good chance of being legit. It is in very nice shape and I'm honestly not sure what to label it...is this a Lamination on a clad quarter..ooor maybe an occluded gas bubble?..it 100% is not glue. It is very ap-pealing...pun intended

@ktc, yes not glue. Can you confirm that this layer is separated from the rest of the coin? It doesn't look like the bubbling that we see with overheated coins, but rather a thin layer that has delaminated from the bulk metal, but has not peeled away at all.

occluded gas bubles usually only occur on solid alloy coins...but that is the only other guess I can come up with other than a lamination

I agree. A struck through clad debris onto this coin. The more the images on this one, the more interesting it was. Probably a small premium as it is not seen often. (my first time)

If it were stuck in debris,wouldnt you be able to see the edges or complete outline of the fragment? This appears to be blended in so well to the surface that I wouldnt personally say it is simply a strike thru...just my opinion

Certainly seems lam-like with the lip peeling away at the rim near IGWT.

Lamination that just didn't crack along the surface in many places. I like it.

What is the anomaly on the rim below the date? It seems to be in line with the main part. Any images of that part of the edge?

I'm wondering if this could be something (grease? oil? liquid?) that got between the layers and kept them from bonding.

Still part of the same issue. It would be nice to see if it folds over on the reeds? If so and it covers the copper layer, that would be concluding proof that is is a struck through part separate partial cladding on the area. Good thought though? Can wait to hear what the answer is to my question.

The obverse clad layer is separating internally along the horizontal plane. Basically we're looking at a lamination error restricted to the surface of the clad layer.
