So here is a cool dime that I've been meaning to post for about a week now... Any help with what all is going on here?

Please properly rotate photos before posting. Also, a few too many pics for one post. All I am seeing is circulation damage.

John1, sir, you really don't see the extra rim edge opposite of the chunk of dime coming into the coin there? Pictures 4&5 I know that I can take another dime and place it perfectly on that indention or whatever chunk that's missing from the top. So I thought maybe it was an off-center strike? But there is clearly a hole other rim edge there... I get it from kind of seeing it right now that the two whole pictures of the coin aren't the greatest so I apologize but them close ups show em really nice... That's also why I included so many pics, but that didn't work...lol

Not an off centre strike.
There is nothing I see on that coin that can't be contributed to damage or wear.
Always sceptical when someone states "errors", it is hard enough
to find one error on a coin let alone several.

to the CCF!

this looks to be a well circulated dime that has been damaged. The metal was displaced by the impact and forced over the reverse lettering and also pushing the coin out of round. It has to be Post Strike Damage as nothing in the minting process could have caused this. It was most likely a normal coin when it left the mint.

Agree, just a normal coin with rim damage.

Here's a picture I guess maybe that better represents what I'm talking about and actually shows better of why I think this is more than what you guys are saying... And I'm sorry I'm not trying to be a pain in the butt but I know what I'm looking at and once again I apologize I didn't take good enough pictures to really get the ring I thought I did cuz I can see it when I get home I'll get better pictures of it but this is the best one that I got right now that represents what I'm saying but you can see there's a whole another ring popping out of opposite of where the damage is on that coin. Thank you all for your patience with me on this too...

It looks like a controlled pneumatic blacksmith hammer ( not the construction type) blow then hit through maybe a pipe to simulate a rim. I other words PMD. Keep searching!

It can only be one of two things, an error or damage.
As it could not have happened during the striking of the coin,
which is the only time an error can occur,
then it has to be damage, no matter how it happened.

And like a ton of breaks it hits me I now realize I've been using the wrong terminology as far as air and damage goes thank you fellas for driving that one home... At the end of the day my biggest curiosity is to just how it happened or if anybody knows how it happens but I will try to be more clear with my vocabulary when it comes to damage vs error... As always thank you, much appreciated!

If the edge images were shown, it might be a partial collar, or just damage. Just can tell from the images provided. If so the edge could be affect on the coin. If it is damage, then the whole edge could be affected. But images of the edge would be helpful.

SmackRampage, You appear to have answered your own question regarding how the damage to the rim occurred with the the above quote and the last photo you posted (twice) Someone likely placed another dime on top of the 1973 dime and hit it with a hammer.

I agree with the other comments. This is post-mint damage, not a mint error.

Practice photo editing to reduce many to just one or two. As explained your dime is damaged, as you answered your own question about how the damage happened. Interesting find, post mint damage ( PMD), but not worth a premium.

The new pictures do show how this could have happened, but it happened after the coin was minted. The area in question would look very different if this happened to be 2 coins in the striking chamber at the same time.

The raised line of metal over the tops of the letters OF A wouldn't be there if this was a mint error. The edge would be smooth and level with the indention, but the displaced metal is on top of the letters that were struck normally.

This is why we say it's not an error. The features show that this is just Post Mint Damage. PMD

Also note, how the folded over area, is showing the outline of the rim. That tells me it was in the correct location when struck, but afterwards if was moved to it new location. I agree, it just coin damage post strike.
