Is this real or not
Genuine. It probably spent many years buried and was then found and placed back into circulation. The elements in the soil turned it black.
Ok thank you
Ore question This is a 2014 roosevelt dime is this du
So when you say genuine. Do you mean it is a black nickle cause there seem to be a lot of mixed feelings about this error on line
Genuine = made by the US Mint.
Black = not as made but a process that happened after the coin left the mint (Post Mint Damage)
Dime pics are too blurry to decipher.
Ok now I understand. I hope these are better
Here's some help: If YOU can't see the doubling in the
photo you took of your dime, no one else can either.
Can you see clear doubling that you mention in the photo above?
We can't either.
No only with the microscope
Your dime photos are not very good, however I can say with a fairly high degree of certainty that what you are seeing is just worthless strike doubling.
5 cents and 10 cents ...

The dime has machine (or strike) doubling...no numismatic premium... The nickel discoloration is also post mint...frequently from being in the ground for a while...Cheers, RickO
My opinion: If you have to wonder about it or need high magnification to see it it is not worth bothering with.
