I pulled this from a roll today. It's clad. Pocket piece? Damage? Your thoughts?

    A product of the rock tumbler no doubt.

    I like the rock tumbler theory, but in any case it's very odd looking.

    Definitely not Accented Hair.... :D ... Looks like a product of a vibratory case cleaner....with coarse medium. Cheers, RickO

    It looks like it may have been in a key fob or locket type holder and carried. Damaged, though, yet without the surfaces a rock tumbler provides. Do you believe it is a 90% planchet?

    I hate to say this but this is the first Kennedy that I dislike. UGH!
    I too would say that this baby spent a lot of time breaking rocks in an industrial tumbler.

    Kennedys are my quest...

    I think it's pretty darn cool looking.

    I bet you wouldn't be saying that if it was a mint error! ;)
