Hi guys, so I have a little experience with error coins but I am at a loss for what this is. My friend who doesn't really collect coins found it in a coin star. I first thought it was a mule or a broad strike, but its just too different from either.
Please help me identify what this is, if its even an authentic mint error in the first place.
P.s. I know I am holding this coin extremely irresponsibly, but I didnt even think it was authentic at first.

This dime appears to have a bronze or copper bezel around it, as if it was to be made into a piece of jewelry. Why this date/this dime? Who knows. It is not a mint error, but post mint, someone has added a metal band around this coin.

That explanation seems logical too. Hard to tell not having the coin in hand. E&V is probably right.

Please, please do not take my opinion on this coin as negative or demeaning anybody's knowledge of coins by any means because I respect all from those with 1 post on up to those with 10,000 posts. I respect all. But....it seems like the term " dryer coin" is used quite a bit when it seems there is just no logical answer. And I've seen A LOT of variations and types of dryer coin like images. I have a few myself and each of them are far from any two alike. Could there be more going on with these coins? I myself, have no explanation but maybe there could be, for the good of coin collecting, going on here. Example...I recently posted a 1953 nickel that is a gun metal blue/black in color and one comment was made that there aren't any of the "Black Beauty" type in that year. My answer to that, not saying the coin is a Black Beauty, there is a possibility of new discoveries everyday. So again, not being disrespectable to anyone, could there be more going on, uniquely, with these coins? Thanks everyone....

What comes to my mind is someone started to spoon this coin in hopes of turning it into a ring

I agree with it being a dryer coin. I believe the edge of a spooned coin should be less flat, and more round/beveled.

Did you ever get a chance to weigh it? Just curious if it maintains it's weight during/after that process....

Looks like either a dryer coin or a spooned coin. Either way PMD. In future posts,please crop photos before posting...thanks.
