I came across this 1874 dime years ago and only recently have a renewed interest and excitement around Error Coins. Please help this coin is thinner in spots and appears to me to have "folded up" on one side. Also it is Definatelty elongated and misshapen. please help this (overly) excited Noobie

First, welcome to the forum. It is a great place to learn. Second, sorry but your coin is just badly damaged, not an error. Keep looking and studying coins and you will soon be able to tell the difference.

I agree with @lcutler about both points. Being out of round is a good indicator of damage.

Coin has been flattened somewhere in its long life.
Not an error coin. PMD.

PS-
Always show both sides of coin when posting.
It helps in determining what is going on.
