So I found this 1967 roosie dime while searching the drawers at work. Its very thick, the proper diameter for a dime, smooth edges, not reeded. havent got acess to a scale yet. here are some pics, comparing it to a nickel and a quarter. it abou the same thickness as the nickel which brings me to my question. Is this a nickel stock dime error and if so whats its value? from research I see a lil about Quarter stock dime from this time but even info on those is scarce. HELP! lol Sorry for the blurry pics best I can do atm.
I agree with PMD, possibly a dryer coin. THe fact that you can see copper proves it is not from nickel stock, and the way the rim is pushed up high above the field of the coin makes me think dryer coin.
Yes, this can happen. I own 2 wrong stock errors. I own one of the most common, the 1970 D quarter struck on dime stock. I also found while roll searching a 1969 dime struck on quarter stock. The error happens when a roll of the wrong stock is fed through the blanking press. The blank is the right diameter but the wrong thickness and possibly the wrong composition depending on which stock was used.
