Lamination? I'm not real sure what this is. I've had it for years and just rediscovered it in my junk coin stash. Thanks for your inputs/opinions!

    Yes - Lamination! And a nice one to boot.

    A great lamination example. Very nice.

    I'm in the lamination column.

    Now that I'm looking at it again, what about a delamination?

    That bas always bugged me.
    Coin lamination vs delamination:
    These terms describing the errors seem absolutely incongruous with the faults observed with these coins. Lamination is the process of joining two thin materials together. Delamination is the process of splitting apart of laminated layers. A failure of the adhesive joining the layers.
    I think, if I'm right, the terms have been used interchangeably many times for the type failing of the OP's coin. JMO
