Not an error, it is PMD.

I was thinking that but it's also pretty uniform on both sides would have thought it'd be less uniform. but I'm no expert either

Weight is within tolerance. The damage may have spread it out a bit.

As that could not happen during the striking of the coin , it has to be damage, no matter how it happened.

That suggests to me that someone started to turn this into a "Texas cent".

Hmm strange they musta rubbed the multiple layers of coin off also while they were climbing said tree


Know it's hard to show somebody in person but it's barely got any silver coloring to it just enough to make it look like a dime definitely not as much as the same dime from the same year and in the same place does or any of the other dimes I have . Figured if somebody scotched across the concrete all day it'd probably affect more than just that area on both sides of it

It is damage plain and simple. How much of the copper nickel outer layer you can see on the edge varies from coin to coin. It can not have come from the mint like this, the coin is struck within a collar, that imparts the reeds and makes it the correct diameter. The only way a coin can be struck larger diameter than normal is if it is struck without the collar. This coin has the reeded edge so it was struck in the collar properly.

Someone has taken a hammer to the edge, that's what spread the diameter out and thinned it out. Both the obv and rev are flattened out.

trinitytx23 ,
Please properly crop pics before posting...thanks. We only need to see the coin not the background.All that background uses up server space needlessly.
