It hasn't been cleaned since I've had possession of it, which has been about 25 years. But it was well circulated. The criteria for qualifying as a No FG half seem to be very vague. How do you know if it is or if it isn't? Was there a die that actually had the FG missing on it when it was made? Or were the initials polished away in all cases?
I found this dime the other day and noticed it looked strange with the naked eye. Looking closer under a scope, it appears to have some sort of doubling on the front and the back. I see it best in "United States of America" and in "Liberty". Also looks like a double ring in the edge between the 9:00 O'Clock and 3:00 O'Clock positions on the front and back. Is all of this MD?
