    I've found a few 40%ers from CWR dumps that have that same "clad" edge. This is one of the reasons why I always check dates. It takes longer but it's better to be safe than sorry. Thanks for that pic!

    i've had 40% silvers before that i could have swore were copper edges, the ping test works great, can't miss it.
    i've actually missed a 1964 kennedy that was uncirculated but super toned by edge checking, that heavy ping just can't be missed

    oh boy, am I the only one seeing a "huntcoinsdotcom" thing popping up?

    Just joking there Merc Crazy, it's a little thing that happened with another member in the past posting contests and asking for personal information to send out a "prize" to the winner.
    There's nothing wrong with friendly competition though

    I have lots of 40%s that have silver and black sadwitch. My 40% proofs look wild, you can actually make out the copper - but it's not sandwitch, it just looks like pink silver. But, I would still like to see these hard to spot coins in a group of calds. It would be interesting.

    My 40% proofs look like 90%.
    1/100 of an American dollar is a cent. It is NOT a penny. The word penny is used by several other countries, such as Great Britain, to denote their smallest denomination. In order to be numismatically correct, you must use the term cent to describe the American coin.

    Yep, the easiest way to see a 40%er that looks clad is in a cellophane wrapped '65 SMS or a mint set. Of course some of them have tarnished and look like a normal 40%er, but most look just like a copper nickel clad coin except the copper looks a bit more pink.

    Or 12th from left it looks like.

    I know I have missed a few dimes. I had finished up a few boxes late one might and my eyes were extremely tired. Next morning, I am dumping into a counter in the bank lobby and I see a Merc staring up at me.

    Lol, I should have known better than to guess the obvious one. Now I am wondering just how many 40's I have missed.

    I have found a number of dirty, tarnished, darkend halfs that may have been missed. The quickest, easiest way to do a sound check is to let the coins drop from one hand to the other. It takes less than 5 seconds a roll. The silver sound is unmistakable, you will even hear the clunk of a magician or other coins that are distinctive. You may miss some of the errors, because you are only seeing one side of the coin, but you won't miss any silver.
