I was goin thru a few rolls of dimes I got from out of town and this one definitely stood out a little. Just wondering if anyone's seen something like this b4 and what could have "polished????" It down like this. Appreciate yalls time haven't quite seen anything like this b4

    It's definitely damaged after it left the mint. I can't say for certain what caused the damage, but can say with confidence that it cannot occur during the minting process

    I have found numerous cents, dimes, and quarters that are in the same condition when searching bank rolls. It's gotta be PMD. It seems like someone is trying destroy coins in their HS shop class.

  • Looks almost double die ground or somethin with the circulating scratch marks and center being virtually unscathed. Here's 2 more I found a while back I forgot about

    What is double die ground? Part of the minting or die making process?

    Your coin is damaged, nothing more. For a coin to an error/variety, you should be able to explain how it occurred during the minting or die making processes. What you're seeing COULD NOT occur at the mint.

    If you plan to search for errors and varieties, knowing and understanding the minting process will save you from wasting a lot of time. Here are links to get you started.
