Cladding problems

Are cladding problems like die slippage pretty common ?

    ? Would need photos.

    "Die slippage" isn't a common term.

  • I apologize about the photo
    But if you look at Monticello it has no cladding or very little as you can see copper all through the building
    But the cladding is above and below and pools along the edge of the coin

    Nickels are not clad. The planchets are made from solid 75Cu25Ni alloy

  • So why the discoloration in the nickel

  • And why the pooling ?

    Environmental toning. Just looks like a normal nickel

    No idea what pooling is.

    Nickels are a solid homogenous alloy. They are not clad.

    Someone needs to study up on coin composition and error reference terminology. Good luck. Peace Roy
