I have found in my pocket change this 2000 rosevelt dime. It seems to me to authentic and has major damage from the mint. I was wondering if I should try sell it as is or to go get it authenicated or graded.

to CCF. Start by posting a full coin photo of the obverse and reverse as well as one or two close ups where needed.

Unfortunately, I believe your coin is simply damaged, which makes it worth at most 10 cents.

Definitely damaged, but after it left the mint!

Just post mint damage. Not a mint error, sorry. Should you get it graded? Absolutely not. It would be a waste of money. The grading fees would be approximately $50, the value of your damaged coin is 10 cents, the new value after grading is 10 cent... you just lost $50.

to the CCF!

Oh, but I DO know the difference (between PMD and a true mint error). I have studied the minting process, and I know there is nothing in the minting that would cause a coin to look like this. Plus, I am active everyday here in the CCF and we see both true minting errors and coins that are beat up from post mint damage, and I own coins that are true mint errors and coins suffering from PMD. So, I DO know the difference from experience, and THIS dime is nothing more than post mint damage.

How was it damaged? There are a million ways PMD is caused, and if this coin could talk, perhaps it'd tell us. If in doubt, I encourage the coin's owner to send it into PCGS and see what they say. If so, please let us know their answer along with a photo of the slab.

It is most likely PSD, but there is a reason we like to see both sides of the coin. An image of the second side can provide a lot of information by confirming something or ruling something out.

I was born and raised in the US and was never very good with English class in school. Give me science or math any time instead. I'm simply pointing out why this sentence is one reason pronouns can be problematic.
I think the OP was referring to themselves about posting images of mint damage but then mentions Macmercury by name.

IMHO, I don't think AlwaysLooking was questioning Macs experience, but the OP's experience and reason for posting.

ps.I've been wrong before and I doggedly reserve the right to be so again at any point in the future!
I usually just give myself a ... to clear things up.

EDIT: Clarified attribution of comments between OP and AlwaysLooking. Time to give myself a .

I was referring to the person that submitted the post that is trying to learn something from others more informed than themself.
