These planchets have pieces of metal “peeling” from them. The lamination can be completely missing or retained on the planchet. The larger the lamination, the greater the rarity. Laminations are frequent on the 35% silver war nickels of 1942-1945. They are common on wheat cents, but are rather rare on 90% silver coinage.
