(Had to repost to fix name of title)

I read an article about verifying whether my 1970 dime is a "no s" or just any regular dime but I can't tell. To me it looks like any other dime which it probably is, but on the article it says it's supposed to be reflective and to me by looking at it, it's reflective.

The more I look at it the more I think it's a regular dime. Just want a second opinion.

The 1970 dime I'm referring to is the middle one

Thank you guys so much for helping me. I'm quite new to this hope to learn more so I can verify things on my own. If you have tips please let me know

Your Dime is just a normal business strike . The 1970 no S Dime is a proof error .

I'd start looking online at S minted proof coins. That is what you are looking for in the 1970 no S error.
Lincoln cents - 2 holes; 1909SVDB/1914D / Jefferson nickels - Done / Roosevelt dimes - Done / Mercury dimes - 2 Holes; 1916D/1921P / Washington quarters - 10 holes /
Kennedy halves - 7 Holes / Buffalo nickels - 10 Holes / V nickels - 7 holes / Shield nickels - 5 Holes
Other works in progress - Barber-SLQ combined / Indian Head cents / 7070 / WLH-Franklin combined

- your 1970 dime is a business strike example. Become familiar with what a proof strike coin looks like ... that is what you are looking for.

Go on ebay and buy a 1970 S dime. You can get one for under $2, shipping included. Then you will have something to compare future "possible No S" dimes to. When you find one that looks just like your "with S" dime then come show us. Once you have a real proof dime in hand you will understand the difference.

@Riftlegacy -

Here's the short story: the San Francisco mint puts an "S" mintmark on its coins. In 1970 they accidentally forgot to put the "S" on some of their dimes. Those dimes were put into proof sets, they were not released into circulation. Hope that helps clarify the other comments.
