(a) Mutilated coins of 90 percent silver are not accepted at their face amount but at their bullion or metal value, calculated at the price fixed by the Director of the Mint in accordance with $ 100.14. Mutilated coins which were minted under authority of Public Law 89-81 are accepted at the value at which coins of 90 percent silver of the equivalent denomination would be accepted in similar condition, in accordance with such comparative measurement as is feasible. Mutilated coins which are so defaced or fused together as not to be readily and clearly identifiable as to genuiness and denomination will be accepted at their bullion or metal value. Mutilated minor coins are accepted at their bullion or metal value.

(b) Coins are mutilated when punched, clipped, plugged, fused together, or when so defaced as to be not readily and clearly identifiable as to genuineness and denomination. Coins containing lead, solder, or other substances which will render them unsuitable for coinage metal will not be accepted. Coins that are bent or twisted out of shape, but are readily and clearly identifiable as to genuineness, and coins that have been reduced in weight by natural abrasion only, are not regarded as mutilated, and will be received at face amount. $ 100.12 Where mutilated coins should

Multilated silver coins shall not be commingled with other types of coins in the shipment.

(b) Mutilated clad coins minted under the authority of Public Law 89–81 will be paid for in accordance with the provisions of $ 100.10. [34 F.R. 16427, Oct. 16, 1969, as amended at 35 F.R. 11020, July 9, 1970] $ 100.15 Minor coins.
