I noticed this coin up for auction as struck through and it seemed extreme for a grease strike. I started looking for die adjustment dimes and came up with this one:

It's from the 60s but strikingly similar to the coin I'm posting below. I ended up getting the coin for $8. What do you think?

Just a simple Greaser to me, but I'm hardly a student.

Dearborn I'm no expert on these either but did you look at the coin on Heritage I posted the link to. The weakness is in the same locations.

Hey Will, I'm thinking you are also going to have to do a weight on this one just to rule out a thin rolled planchet as that could look pretty similar as well.

I'm leaning toward grease. Most die adjustments strikes I've seen have no rim or very little rim remaining. Not a bad price at $8 though.

Weight would help to determine thin planchet, but I'm also leaning toward Greaser as well.

I lean towards a weak strike because the weakness in the hair matches the weakness on the lower right of the reverse and symmetry of weakness is a sign of a low pressure strike.

Also, I see die flow lines around some of the affected edges and I think any grease present to obscure the devices would also likely flatten those as well. Look at RTY, for instance, and notice the depth of the letters is reduced but the flow lines in between the letters are not affected.

Shots of the reeding would be very helpful because weak reeding is almost always found in a weak strike.

Yes I did, notice how there is virtually no rim to the HA coin, your coin is fully intact. The area on the reverse is also opposite the thickest part of the head on the reverse., it is possible that the metal tent there due to a grease pile-up on the reverse die or a thinner than average die. I don't think that you have a die adjustment strike coin though.
However that is just my observations and mine alone (I'm no expert on those)

I weighed it and the weigh is spot on. As far as the reeding goes it looks normal as well but has little clad showing. That would be the only observation I made.
Dearborn I'm looking at that rim now and you are correct, it is lacking and seems like the reeding on that coin would be missing.
My thought now on this coin would be grease or a slightly stronger strike than the example I posted a link to above.

Die adjustment strikes/low pressure strikes don't form the outside ring on the coin:

The dime is clearly a grease strike. The full reeding and uneven pattern of weakness are clear evidence of this.
