Sorry, a closeup of the date is needed. Is there copper visible on the edge? It looks like a silver dime, so 1960-64.

Looks like it has been in the ground for some time and cleaned white silver?

My focus on date would help. I believe spruett001 may be on target.

Second thought that almost looks like the corner of a 4.

A full view of coin both sides too, will tell Mintmark. I see details appearing close to the rim. this is either a VLDS die state, deterioration or I detect some rim malformation of a possible dryer coin.

Interesting looks like part of the 1 was never stamped?

If that is the case I am sure some one here might know more than I about this one.

Thanks for the pics! I agree it appears to be 1961 and also an early to mid stage dryer coin, as Crazyb0 pointed out.

Here's another image of the coin. Want you to take a look at the end of of the date, to the right side of the 1, looks like there's something there ...I can't make out what it is or if anything at all. Plus on the forehead there appears to be another eye? Let me know what you think. Thanks-Slymer oh and one last thing is about the shape of the rim, it makes the coin look like a saucer bowl , it is raised whilst the middle dipped in like a plate or a bowl

Sorry I do not render legal advise or legal opinion: There is an old saying "That ignorance to the law is no excuse".

Just google it if you do not believe the fact that I stated.
