Hi Folks,

I found the following "coin" in going through some change. It appears to be a blank Dime Planchet, but I was not sure. I weighed it and it was 2.26 grams and also the exact dimensions of a dime.

Would anyone know if it is a blank dime, and if so, what would be the value?

If it does have value, does it pay to have it graded, even in this condition (or is condition not a factor with these?)?


Thanks and Happy Holidays

Regards

Thank you so much for your reply.

Would you know if this has any value?

Also, would it be worth it to grade it?

There is one on eBay for sale for $9.99 or best offer which seems about right.
Never seen a planchet graded (Not saying there hasn't been one) but can't figure
how they would grade it.
Certainly not worth sending out as the cost would be about 3 times the value of the coin.

If you don't have a valuable answer, does a sarcastic reply make you feel better and more powerful from behind your keyboard than when you are away from your keyboard?

Look, I'm obviously a newbie...cut me some slack, chum

to the CCF!

It's next to impossible to know the year of a planchet. Only if you found it in a bag of finished coins would you be able to claim you knew the date.

Too bad it's not a proof issue like this PCGS PR-64! https://mikebyers.com/29485316.html

@cs2017, since it is clad, about the only bracket that you can apply to this plachet is 1965-2019. That isn't' super-helpful I know, but I don't see how you could narrow the range down at all from that.

Thanks folks....I appreciate the welcome, and @Spence, understood. I figured maybe by something in the images it would have rounded it down further, but I truly appreciate it, friend.


Happy Holidays, everyone!

I'd be curious as to the value of this, not much I'm sure.

I would imagine the value would be actually LESS than a dime... I could see a clerk in a store not accepting it if it has no indication of an actual coin. It's just a blank piece of worthless metal. If it isn't minted, is it truly a coin? A coin operated machine would accept it, assuming the weight is good, but otherwise, is there any proof it is a coin?

Well, that's because a clerk is not of the same mindset as a coin collector. The clad layering would be a pretty good indication of this being an unstruck planchet. Value is subjective and relative. If CS2017 is trying to unload it, yeah, this may be worth a few bucks. But things like this tend to have a somewhat personal and sentimental value. Like hey, *I* found this myself, and even if it's not worth big bucks, at least I'm finding something. Plus these are the kinds of finds all neophytes use to build their knowledge base. So let's not belittle things like this. It's okay to be real about the value, but please keep in mind new collectors are easily discouraged by the learning curve and the impression of an unwelcoming community.

Welcome to the forum, CoinSeeker. Congrats on the find and please ask more questions if you have them.

@merclover, yes technically this is just a piece of metal. It is not legal tender. However, thousands of collectors including me would be happy to pay a premium for a curiosity like this.

For that matter, an MS 65 1916D dime is only worth 10 cents-as currency. The currency value of an item is usually a rather minor consideration for the coin collector.

So I found a blank dime planchet a few weeks ago in change given back at the store. Dropped it off to my guy at the local coin shop. He graded it today. Said 75 something. Said he'll have. Cash offer for me this evening
