Obviously it isn't the oldest coin ever just missing the 0 but I have been through thousands of dollars in dimes and never seen one missing the entire number. I don't even see a trace of it there. Wish the coin was in better condition.

@hail, that is a kinda fun find. Will you keep it or chuck it back into your dump rolls?

Coop yours is in much better condition. Found mine in a $1000 bag of dimes that I am about $200 into. Holy cow do dimes take forever to search. Not bad so far though also found a 1945 mercury, a 1956 Silver, and a couple broad struck slightly. I think I am right about the broad struck still fairly new to this.

Well before you go to far as for looking for doubled dies on dimes, you might want to check a couple of sites to see what years have listings. Most dimes are duds after 1973. Some newer ones have DDO or DDR on just certain areas of the coin. Most of the time all you find is Machine Doubling.

So don't ruin your eyesight on the dud years. On the DDR's there is a new location on the torch to look for the DDRs of the new dimes:

So look to see where to find the varieties on these dimes. Pretty slim listing for these.

Thanks Coop much appreciated. I am very familiar with what years to look at with Half dollars, Quarters, and Nickels where I don't have to use a book. When it comes to dimes and pennies I am still learning for sure since this is the first $1000 bag of dimes I have ever searched. As far as pennies I have been through some but honestly I have $800 worth the pennies in bank boxes and bags still unopened. I will maybe get to those one day. I guess I tend to lean towards what I can get through the fastest. I will definitely print out a list of years for the dimes though so I don't waste my time because you are right my eyes start going crazy when looking through those.

But coin errors can be spotted. The errors are a lot less time consuming. (Cuds, struck through, fins, MAD with the devices falling over the edges, and other things) Die events I don't waste my time with.

Yeah I only search coins I know have die breaks or chips in certain areas. I use to search every coin now I don't waste my time but I also do this to make some extra money since I am a single father of 2 and every dollar counts for me. If I can sell a penny for .99 cents and charge $2 shipping I will do it because it all adds up. I keep a book of all my coins and currency I sell and what is costs minus fees and supplies to ship and figure out my profit margin. Some I only make $1.50 on but that all adds up. I understand some people don't bother or put in the time which I understand but for me it is extra money and a free meal for the kiddos and I sometimes. Plus I think it is such a fun hobby. I am only really a collector of tone coins not errors as I sell them for extra cash. Even though I have kept most the W quarters I have found and the rotated reverse nickel as well. I was lucky enough to get $30 for a Homestead quarter with tons of snow on the roof and a birds nest on the top window. I was really happy about that
