Kind of looks like an early stage dryer coin, could be some grease issue in the die, is the reeded edge stil present?

@cool, I think that several areas were lightly struck due to a little grease in the die. Some of this may also be circulation flattening.

I don't think this has spent anytime in a dryer. It looks like the rim area of the die was coated in grease.

The reverse rim looks very thick in some places, only reason I suspected possible dryer coin, I do think there is grease at work as well possible a MAD. Mix it all together and ya:p

To me it looks like vending machine damage to the coin. Possibly lived in a casino back in it's youth. (BC = Before Cards for the casino machines)

Another opinion.

It's a 1985-D dime. These were notorious for being struck on planchets with inadequate upsets. They strike up soft and mushy like this.

Agree with Yokozuna as to the cause. The lack of well formed rim gutters on the reverse shows that, at least for the reverse of the coin, grease in the die was not the cause.
