Hi - what does 'Wheat' and 'Clad' refer to please?
Obvious terms we don't use in MD in the U.K. As far as I know.
Congrats on the Token find.thanks for the post

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.
