I found this coin looking for silver and wheat pennies in my change drawer.

I was surprised to find this, and have found very little info googling.

I've found that some Silver proof sets from 1990 where issued in Sanfransciso , but not 1991 and not Philadelphia!

I apologize for odd cropping... trying to work within this forums upload limits

Anyone have any info on this coin?

@Edentulate, first welcome to CCF. Second, rather than solid silver, you almost certainly have a clad coin that was subsequently plated. As the frog mentioned, getting an accurate weight will confirm whether it is clad or silver.

To CCF! Probably a plated coin. Please get the weight of your coin.

Thanks,

I don't have a scale... but will work on that. I've been wanting one anyhow.

Is a clad coin a "proof set" coin?

I meant to say a "plated clad coin"... is that a proof set coin?

What confuses me is that the coin has moderate wear and scratches.... but no exposure to any underlying layers of it is plated.... well, at least that's to say, if it was plates by a mint... I guess it could have always been played years later after the accumulation of ware by some random person via electrolysis

Yes this. We see an example posted here just about every week.

Makes more sense for a steel cent than some random 90s Dime though, imo... well, I'll let you all know what I find out once I find a scale

You can do a "drop test" silver should sound different from regular dime

1996-S was the first return of the silver dime. So it has to be a plated coin.

No, a plated clad coin means somebody plated it after it left the mint.

1992, the 90% silver proof sets started back up in 1992.
