That is a 40% silver coin,that is why you do not see copper on the edge.

There is usually just a slight hint of color:

But that is a normal one.

1965-66-67-68-69-70 are 40% silver. Sometimes, but not always you might see a little copper layer on the 40% silver halves.

Looks way too good to be a fake. This looks to be the real deal.

Is that a die crack above the date, or just damage?
