Just recently acquired a bunch of coins and I am quickly becoming obsessed with the history and fun in the coin collecting community so I’m open to any information about any of my postings and please forgive me if I am incorrect about any post. 1834 cap bust dime with what appears to be a error “after mint damage” for sale 30.00 after reconsideration 😁 I’m always open to offers

    Sorry to say but that looks like damage done to the coin.

    Post mint damage of some sort.
    Since you are open to advice, I think the original price of $15 on the 2x2 is a lot closer to the real value than the price on the green sticky note.

    Welcome to the Board.

    Your dime is not a mint error. It looks to be ex-jewelry with remnants of the mount remaining on the coin.

    Also, if you want to sell a coin, it's best if you post images of both sides of the coin.

    Now if you had provenance from Nelson H. Davis that he personally had this made, used as a cufflink shortly before his career as a US soldier.
    That would probably add a little value.
    Google around a bit and do some research, coin collecting just might interest you.
