I have not been doing this very long and maybe I'm just easily amused but I find this going to be interesting I apologize for the quality of the pictures I am only relying on my phone for that but I do my best. Does anyone else find this as interesting as I do and is it worth keeping?

Please post a photo of the rim, taken at an angle. Could be a dryer coin--rim characteristics need to be determined.

It looks kinda interesting to me. I see a coin struck from tired dies, perhaps with a small die crack at about 2 o'clock on the obverse. On the rev, there appears to be a slight rim fin, which I think can occur if the coin is struck with one die at a slight angle. I'm interested to hear what others think.

Rim fins are on the outside edge of the rim, not the inside edge of the rim.

Nice to know what what rim finning is. I actually have coins with those characteristics and I think this may be one of them but it is also in surprisingly good condition for its age and the hole thing is blurred out. Would rim finning actually cause that? Hoping these pictures help you decide. Just remember my camera is horrible.

On the inner edge I feel it is like Machine Doubling, but looseness of the machine allowing the rim to be affected. (Die tilting slightly)

Okay, I can get on board with you on that but why are the details of the coin all blown out like that? It's not damage.

This coin looks like it was struck with late stage dies. I think that's why you see the starburst like metal flow lines on the coin. The smeary weak details could be from design-devouring die wear mostly seen on the reverse of your coin. Many dimes of the early/mid eighties have missing and weak details as the dies were used far beyond the point that they should have been retired.

Okay, that's informative. Much appreciated. And so all of that being said, is it worth keeping?

Only if you want to save it as an educational piece to show to a new collector. But it is pretty much a face value coin.
