I found this today. Is this a mint error? Does it have any value above ten cents?

Thanks!

@int, first welcome to CCF. Second, it looks to me like someone has intentionally ground down the rims on this dime. It isn't an error therefore and is only worth face value.

I agree, it is damage, not an error.
No value above face.

Thanks for the welcome and quick replies! 'Intentional damage' Why would someone do that post-mint?

Also, I just noticed it doesn't have the reeded edge or, at least much of one.

Agree with all above--post-strike damage. We see coins very much like this one two or three times a week on this forum.

Thanks. I don't get why people do this. Just for giggles?

just intentional damage
why do people do this? I think it is an attempt to create an error coin that could potentially be sold to an unsuspecting buyer. (Just go look for error coins on ETSY.)

This is a type of " dryer coin".
