I have this dime with a weird collar error that I first thought was a die clash, but doesn't have the reeding that is expected of one. Does anyone want to explain? Also the "NUM in "e pluribus unum is larger than the rest of the letters.

It was when the coin was struck (not flattened) was fin on that area. When the machine is getting sloppy, the die stroke was tilted a bit before the strike creating a fin. What does a fin look like?





The fin is usually flatten when the coins are roll up and crimped into the roll. So they flatten easily. If the fin was present, it would be a keeper, but it is flattened over. But at least now you know what they are.
