dryer coin. Took a medium ride that flattened the outside edges of the coin. They get worse when left in there a longer time:


The longer the ride, the more damage happens to the coins.

Smaller diameter, thicker rims = dryer coin

@long, the other type of damage which reduces the diameter of a coin is called "spooning", and generally leaves a more dimpled edge than the dryer machinery.
