I've heard of the hollow 'penny' where a Zincoln is put into acid to dissolve the zinc and then a dime inserted into the hollow cent. Since the copper plate is real thin, it can be rolled and the image of the dime begins to show through. Are we sure that this isn't what we are looking at here? My guess: would weigh a bit more than a normal dime but within mint tolerances.

Very nice find! Slabbing is worth it IMO.

Well being new to this grading/ slabbing thing..I may have missed a step. Sending this back for conservation and encapsulation. They are very friendly and helpful there at NGC.

I guess it makes sense for them to do it that way, as long as they will encapsulate it once it is conserved.

Just curious what conservation for something like this may run, if you don't mind me asking?

is it worth the extra money now, that you have confirmed what you have? Are you planning to sell it? Conservation and a hard slab, will just be cutting into your profits. Others can tell you better, once we know what your plans are for the coin..

The conservation fee is only 11 bucks plus the shipping and handling fee. Could have saved a step if I knew while they had it already. Right now, my plan is to hang on to it. Not really into this for profit and don't mind spending a few extra bucks to protect a nice coin.

I agree in a lot of ways. It will eventually get more costly to encapsulate and meanwhile the coin has more chances for issues to happen and diminish the value. I wouldn't wait too long to conserve it because it may be harder to accomplish, the longer it is untreated.
Congrats again.

Your photos are too blurry. Can you see an improvement after conservation? Do you know what the current retail value is? How much are you into the coin,total? Where did you find the coin?

Sorry about the blurry pictures. I can definitely see improvement in the appearance after conservation. I found this coin in circulation many years ago and just recently renewed my interest in collecting. Best I can tell by the Red Book, the value says 350 X (3 to 5). I decided to send it off to basically protect the coin and have just a little over $100 into this one.

That was about the time when the mint employee was striking funny money. But they finally caught him.

Now I am thinking I have a couple really nice Morgans that may benefit from conservation as well.
