This is a coin I've recently acquired, and was hoping I could get some expert input on what I'm looking at here.

I am specifically referring to the reverse, which has a "step" where the struck portion and unstruck portion meet. this step is about half the width of a normal dime and is reeded.

Is this just a huge collar scar or is there something I'm missing here? It coincides with the reeding on the obverse which I previously thought was a collar clash, but now I'm not so sure.

This is a second post of the same coin I posted last week but I didn't have the coin in hand then, and didn't know about the step. If it's better I bump that previous post mods please let me know.












Thanks for the help!

Halo, I know it's an OC strike, I was just curious about what caused the anomaly that I described that this coin contains. I haven't seen something similar before.

The reverse step anomaly most likely from the collars presence during strike? The reeding on the obverse has me thinking a possible collar clash prior. Thanks, Doug.

Thanks for the thoughts, that was my line of thinking as well, I've just never seen anything this strong before.

Tilted collar or tilted die?

This dime shows a strong collar scar on the reverse.

Looks like the planchet was sticking past the collar, and since only one of the dies moves, it tried to push the planchet down leaving a flat side(without collar) and the "step" where the collar was able to shape the coin.

The step down is part of the gutter on the die that rounds the rim.

Note the rim gutter on the die.
