I was traded this coin by a friend who said it was old for a cut out dime on a chain she liked. I knew as soon as I saw it that it wasn't old but traded anyway. She is my friend. When I took a closer look at it a few months later I saw that it was unclad and the coin has a high ridge and doesn't have the lines around the outer edge. The last number in the date is only seen as an edge of a number. I beive it to be 1992.I don't know how to use scales but put it on one where it was already set. It weighed 1.07. I put a dime from my change on next. It weighed 1.97 as did the next couple of dimes I weighed. It is dull grey color saying to me it is unclad. Is this something I should keep or just trash it? I have always collected Wheat penny and Buffalo nickles and any silver coins. I throw them in a drawer till recently and now have them properly housed. I think. Don't know anything about these coins.

I found the problem to be my laptop. Going tomorrow to get new one. Since I haven't been told to throw it out I'm getting a bit excited. So can't wait to send pictures. Especially after finding a 1966 dime today with the "we" missing in the " in God we trust". I noticed it as it appears to be unclad also. Maybe I'm being told to make this type of collecting my "major"so to speak. I collect bit of everything. Bills and coins. Lol.

I think I may have answered using a different section. I'm new at this and using my Android. So I'm sorry if I did. I will learn.

Ok. Finally have gotten the photos here. uploaded both as I was afraid I wouldn't be able to do it again. still feel like idiot as I saw all these numbers instead of the photos and thought I did something wrong again. after asking about help I went back and there the photos were. still don't know what I did but now I have them on the original post. I don't know a thing about coins really so these probably are clad. I know the smaller one isn't completely "stamped?". but I'm willing to learn. So can anyone teach me about these two? have lots of questions so will find the correct forums for them.

Getting good at taking those photos but still could use a better photo. However, I think that the coin in question is a bit on the odd side but nothing not to uncommon for these coins.

I put all my odd-ball coins into flips and keep them just for the heck of it.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad tidings, but your 1966 is a grease fill on the WE, and the 199? is what is called a dryer coin, a Post Strike Damaged piece.

Took a spin in a commercial dryer:
