i have the 1953 proof dime and I think it has some kind of error. there are these lines that I thought were scratches on both sides of the coin. but now looking back at it they look like they may be strike throughs, but the strike throughs kind of look like metal shavings and have a reeded look in some areas, and the reeded edge of the coin looks like it has some damage, so since its a proof coin and there struck multiple times is there a chance on the first strike there was some kind of planchet flaw and die pulled a bit of the edge it off and it fell onto the coin and was struck onto it? the pictures where not easy to get but theres were the best I got. any info on what this is would be great, thanks




Obverse

the strike-through starts near his forehead. goes under the Y through the base of the T and through the mid of the R, some rim oddity can be seen too.

line goes through the R, through the top of the E and over the B

line goes over all the letters near the edge, more edge oddity can be seen

line keeps following the edge of the coin and goes through the bottem of the W. edge oddity is seen the most

line goes under trust and a smaller one is seen going through the S,T and neck

the line is seen under the bust and comes up into the back base of the neck
Reverse

small line is seen left side of the D and goes through the E and ends at the N

3 small strike throughs are on one on the flower, above the torch and under the E in states
last
last strike through is seen through the leaf under america
Close-ups of edge


both pics are of the edge on the obverse on the edge by liberty and in god we trust, looks like metal has been disturbed in a way idk.

Wow you are looking extremely close at the coin. You can probably find something on every coin looking that close. Could be struck through lint.

some of what you showed looks like a surface scratch to me. You can see the copper core showing through the cladding

yea. its hard to explain this without the coin in your hand. but when looked at really close there is no metal raised on either side of the scratches and the lines take odd shapes and this is how the coin came from the mint. and these lines can be seen easily with the naked eye. its just on the smallest coin there is. I guess what I should ask is, is it possible for there to be a strike through of this kind on proof coins?

If the bottoms of the affected areas are flat, then it is a cut with a sharp knife. It they are round on the valley, then they could be struck through something. But most are show the flat trench. So someone may have altered this coin?
