1979-D Quarter with Missing Obverse Clad Layer
This coin was found in vending machine change. The obverse copper-nickel clad layer on the original planchet was missing so the obverse design was struck onto the exposed copper core. Due to the missing layer the total coin weight was over 1 gram less than normal.
