Ok, so I was definitely wrong on the last 2 post but is that a clipped dime during mint or PMD? I'm not the best evaluator on coins well at least not quite yet but if u see anything I'm missing please let me know!! Ty!!
I would expect to see some weakness on the rim at the center of the missing metal if it were a clipped planchet. I would also expect to see metal flow across the anomaly. Even the smallest clips that I've seen show this type of deformation of the rim.
The first US coin motto was found on a 1792 half disme and read: "LIB (erty) PAR (ent) OF SCIENCE & INDUSTRY"
Ok well I am not stopping yet, I will find something!! Lol but ty everyone for your great advice! Learn something new today & firm believer in the benefit in learning something new everyday of your life!! So, at least, I did gain the knowledge, lol!!
