OK I'm posting this for a friend of mine who is a coin collector but not huge on computers.

The reverse of the dime looks like a totally normal circulated coin. The front looks as though it was perhaps run over by something and is particularly shiny compared to the back almost like a proof etc.



The thing I'm wondering about is if you look closely there are raised edges that should not be there (right in front of FDR's eyes) + (right by the base of his neck). The characteristics we are wondering about are in the open areas surrounding FDR's bust primarily. It looks almost like some sort of mis-strike but the rim around the edge of the coin doesn't look double struck or anything.

I could see a dime that had been dropped and then run over say in parking lot looking like this except that should flatten it not add extra relief to the coin if you get my drift. Plus like I mentioned above the edges seem to be intact. Something has happened to the face though obviously.

I was just curious what some folks with more experience in the subject might think and I'll relay your thoughts to the owner. I can photograph the back if needed but like I say it looks pretty much normal.

Feel free to email me if you have any questions or anything that is cool too.

I wish the picture was clearer, but this looks like it could be some kind of "strike-through" when something got into the die, maybe grease, and interfered with the striking of the coin. A better picture would be helpful

I agree with ErrorCoins222. This dime was struck through a late-stage die cap. All sorts of odd topographies are associated with such errors.

I've found that struck through die caps bring their best prices when the struck through surface was formed with an extremely wrinkled mid to late-stage die cap. Although I wouldn't put this in that category, it does have an interesting, distorted appearance and should bring a little bit more than your standard example of this error type.

Believe it or not this is shot with a 36 megapixel Nikon :)

If you look at the wood grain it's sharp it's just the way the Dime looks. I'll get a shot of the obverse here today.

Thanks all for your help!

I can believe it. Megapixels are just a savy way to sell cameras to people. The cameras sensor and lens are much more important than the number of megapixels.

That's a very neat coin btw. I wouldn't mind finding one of those myself :) thanks for sharing.
