@silviosi I asked if this was post mint damage. you replied "the answer is NO" maybe you were too quick to reply to my post with negativity and didn't take the time to read what I wrote. Either way, a quick explanation or simple "this is rust" would suffice. this is a friendly community for the most part. I think responses like this are not needed.

OK, I will answer you more detailed as you like.

actually missing the clad layer?


I answered you to this question, which was the main request.

What you has it is a man made simulation of the Mint error. So it is no error from the Mint.

You state I am not sure if it is post Mint or Mint error. Two different topics, and I answer to what we look for or it is valuable for any kind of collectors.

Sorry if I was not clear. I receive so many requests for quarters, and sorry is possible I miss some time the direction of the question.

All my best

Dcjbiggie,
Your coin looks lie environmental damage to me, not missing clad layers.

Looks like a typical metal detector find.

Most likely was a slot machine coin at one time.

If the coin was missing the cladding, then the color would be red.


The color of the red on the outside edge of the clad coin. With the dull finish on your coin is looks like it was around something acidic. altered, but not enough to remove the clad. If the clad were missing, the design below the clad would be ghost like:

Note it the clad was peeled off the coin? The design is weaker under the cladding. Someone peeled this clad off of the coin. It may have been worth a lot more if the cladding was intact?

to the CCF!

A Washington quarter with a missing clad layer will be about a gram underweight. Because of this, the strike tends to be weak. While a few clad coins with both clad layers missing have been certified, they are very, very rare. Only a dozen or so examples are know.

Here's a missing clad Washington quarter from my collection. Note the shallow rims and weak strike on both sides. The obverse still has some really nice luster.

The missing reeds could be the start of a spooned coin.
