Hello, I was hoping to get an opinion on this dime. Is it a dryer coin or has it been hammered down, or something else? It looks like a DDR on back torch and olive branches but possibly from PMD, or possibly not?
I am new to this, so I apologize if I refer to something incorrect, I have never found a DDR or DDO myself but it appears like one here with the naked eye, but I also read all the 2016 coins were full of errors, in all denominations..so I figured I'd check with the pros regarding the collar before sending closeups.

Thanks in advance,
Ali

The edge just looks so smooth and clean like a nickel, and not tampered but like I said, I'm a newbie

It look evenly hammered around the edge, removing the reeds and causing the extra wide coin rim...

That's my opinion... but I'd wait for some other feedback ;)

In fact, you can actually see some of the reeding pattern that was formerly on the rim that is now flattened down...

It almost looks like letters too on collar (edge/rim) but I haven't taken any closeups of that yet to confirm and figured I'd ask first before "investigating" more, and literally have to look at every definition of every thing possible lol and find out if dryer or hammer first

It almost looks counterfeit, lol but I've never seen a coin hammered down either

to CCF!

The coin didn't leave the mint like that. The rim has been "hammered" or "spooned." It really looks like someone worked the metal up and smoothed it with some type of machine.

It could be a dryer coin, but if it is, it seems to have only traveled in a tighter and tighter circle to build the edge up like that.

@Bawillis, first welcome to CCF. Second, for sure this is damage--the unresolved question is how was it damaged. When the enlarged rim is smooth (like yours), we usually call these dryer coins. When it has a more pebbly texture, then we say that it has been spooned. In reality, it could be either of these things (or something else).

I lean toward deliberate alteration.

Thanks everyone, this will help me in future when I see similar damage. I forgot I had this big jar from the 80's in the back of my closet I used for change. Hopefully I'll find something out of it. It'll be fun anyways

It hasn't been spooned and it's not a dryer coin. It was rolled and squeezed in the horizontal plane in an automated or hand-cranked mechanical device. Such devices are sometimes used to reduce the diameter of pipes so they can fit into the end of another pipe.

Definitely a damaged coin, PSD. Mike nailed it.
