Not quite sure what I have here but if be lying if I said I didn't have high hopes for this one. I'm no expert, but I have examined a lot of coins since becoming a coin enthusiast, mainly focusing on modern circulated coins looking for that one of a kind, life changing home run coin. I picked this dime up with 4 others at my favorite doughnut shop at 4 am Tuesday morning. Since I was paying with card, I took along 10 newer Jefferson nickels so I could either trade for 2 quarters or 5 dimes. I decided to go with 5 dimes. I got this one, a 66 no mint mark, 77 D, 2012 P, and a 2017 P. Interestingly I searched YouTube for each of the dates of the nickels I traded before I left. Several 2013s, 14s, 17, 1 18, and several 2020s. Wouldn't you know I found a video on a 2018 P error reverse, extra material on both outside edges of Monticello. Needless to say I hung onto it. I'll share pics in my next post. Sorry this is such a long post but I feel like the story behind the discovery is always relevant. I'm actually a little nervous to hear what the opinion is on this dime. I'm pretty sure I know what I'm seeing, but I have no clue what could have happened to produce it. Never seen itbb4, or found another quite the same.

No mint mark means it was minted at the Philly mint. Obverse looks like something "on" the coin,tape or glue. PMD. Instead of you tube use the search box here on CCF for "true" info.

Given the photos posted I'm seeing a common, circulated '82 D dime--hits, rubs, some light staining, general wear. All that plus a bit of Die Deterioration. Dime might have been face-down in a (very) shallow liquid for a brief period of time--contact with a 'wet' surface. For what it's worth, give the coin an acetone bath.

The stain on the obverse looks like it had something that dried as left a "salt" outline of the original shape. It could have been anything dissolve liquid, but to me it looks like a salt ring.

I've looked at this dime under a microscope. What it looks like to me is a partial outline of the torch from the reverse, but its only on the highest raised areas of Roosevelt's face, upside down, same as the reverse, only rotated 5-10 degrees clockwise. I'd almost be willing to bet on it that's what is. And I realize this technique isn't the most sciencey, but everything does even seems to line up where it should if this indeed is the case, when I use another dime as a template, when I hold the 2 together when u line it up. Best I can tell. It certainly seems a better match for supporting my theory then it does to debunking it, and what's the likelihood of it being it being something else that coin-cidentally also happens to have some very similar features, dimensions, and placement of the very torch imaged on the coins reverse? What I don't understand is why the image seems to Vanish when the light source is moved around and the light hits the coin from certain angles? You can't see it in the one picture, but there still seems to be something going on in that area. I noticed right away when I first looked at the obverse with a 10x jewellers loop, even though I couldn't see the ghost image at first. When I did notice it, it took me a minute before it dawned on me what I realized what I thought I was looking at, but right away I remember thinking that it looked extremely familiar. It had to cross some of your mind. I need a lucky coin-star on this one, my 2020 started back at the end of 2015, I need this..... WHYyyyyy Jesus, why me!!!!#128555;#128527;#128535;#129303; Ok, I may have gotten a bit carried away with the dramatic acting there at the end. Sorry, I was just clowning.... it's Friday right! &

First thing to do is try a 100% acetone soak maybe 10 minutes or so and see what happens. If it is tape or standard glue it should come off, if it is epoxy or Elmer's it most likely will not come off.

Agreed on the acetone, won't hurt the coin a bit but may remove the foreign substance.
