Wheat refers to Lincoln pennies made between 1909 and 1958. They have wheat stalks forming a Wreath on the obverse of the coin.

Clad refers to coins made after 1964. Specifically to dimes, quarters and half dollars which prior to that date were 90% silver. After 1964 these formerly silver coins were made of cheaper metals like copper and mixes of zinc, nickel etc. when we refer to clad it usually means coins we will spend and not keep.

I hope that helps.

Thanks MoBob. That yard produced my oldest US coin, 1807 Half Cent, a first year Shield Nickel, a complete Crotal Bell and half of a pre-civil War Wreath Tongue Buckle. All firsts for me.

We hammered it good. The token was last good find in the yard and it was not a good signal.
