Hello, I am very knew to this and not very educated on error coins. Therefore I found this odd looking dime under my dryer. Could someone tell me if this is an actual error dime, or did someone possibly intentionally do this? Thank you

It looks like it might have been pinned underneath one of the supports for the machine, being constantly rubbed against the floor for years as the dryer vibrated. Is there a washing machine next to the dryer? If so, it might have been under there, since washing machines tend to move more than dryers. If the coin was stuck with the obverse against the floor, this might explain why only the obverse is obliterated.

It is definitely post-mint damage and not an error. Is it a silver dime? (Can you see copper on the edge?)

Welcome to the Forum. You've come to a phenomenal place to share and learn. Enjoy!

it's PMD. Perhaps the coin got caught in just the right place in the machine. Time and friction did the rest.

It's basically a mutilated dime. Value 10 cents.

Value 10 cents....only universally if you manage to avoid a picky cash register attendant.

My new washing machine has several warning stickers about not allowing coins in the drum. This worries me big time considering how many things I accidentally wash.
