Here'a a 1976-D Kennedy half dollar I picked up awhile back with a minor clad layer missing issue on its obverse. It appears a ring of the CuNi layer is missing from Kennedy's portrait.





Here's a link to a far more serious clad layer missing error set in my collection:

The missing ring and discolouration is post mint damage ( PMD). No premium I'm afraid.

@merclover: Thanks for offering your thoughts. You're the first person who's looked at the coin to offer such an assessment. It's always good to have multiple eyes have a look!

No worries! I honestly couldn't care less. I didn't pay much for the coin when I bought it (a few dollars), and I didn't purchase it with the thought of numismatic premium or resale. To me, it's simply an interesting looking half dollar with a commemorative theme. A conversation starter! That's it!

It is a funny rhomboid missing clad. I can not pronounce with out a more close photo. It is possible to take two closer photos?: 1. From up 90 deg. and 2. from any 45 deg angle? Thanks.

But the big question is: "Why is the strike stronger on that hair where the missing cladding is showing?" I feel this is a real missing clad. The color would be that color showing the copper layer. The weight should be reduced just a little. If it were peeled off the coin, the the hair would be more ghost like. Instead it is showing strength.

Note what the surface looks like if the clad layer is peeled off:

So I feel that the cladding was missing before the strike. Thus the full strike affect of the hair.

Note the full strike on the peeled area on this quarter below:

Note the area where it peeled before the strike is showing the void, but the folded area was fully struck.

I'm not sure on this one. It could be a mint error, but I just don't know. Here's a PCGS graded dime with Improper (misspelled) Obv Cladding from my collection. There's also a small spot on the reverse rim just under the DI of dime.

OH yes COOP and Yoko, you guys are wright. I ask the photo more close to see the borders of the clad because I find very interesting coin. It is a small clad missing with a very interesting point of missing clad.

It is a nice coin which maybe has a nice market value, but for me it is only the more close look to figure out the phenomena.

COOP nice explanation and I will take in consideration for future analyses, has logic on.

Yoko, I like your observe with the small missing clad. It is what I want to find out. those like the coin in the post and your seem to be a glad process failure.

@siliosi: Here is a pair of additional images, one directly over head, the other from an approximately 45-degree angle. Let me know if these work for you.

That's what I do. I feel it helps all to show what I see on a coin, so they can see it also.

Sorry answer late. It is really interesting. I have no clue now how was produce. I find funny the meddle point. The borders show a missing clad with no doubt but why the point? I have to go to see what the mint used and if the planchet was not prepared by subs.

Anyways, it is a missing clad with an unusually form. I will say it is very interesting and nice coin.
