    circulation finds?

    That 1938 Jeff is in pretty nice condition for its age.

    You have to wonder where it has been all these years

    My guess is he is seeing the slightly misaligned die.

    Quite common on Roosevelts, I usually put them in my 25-cent or 5/$1.00 bin at shows.

    S-O XXX is right - it's a very minor
    mis-aligned obv. die.

    I'm not sure the weight of the dime but I just liked it cuz the rim seem to be wider on both sides and certain areas and I like dimes like that personally

    I'm buying the scale tomorrow but my guess is that it weighs more because it's wider
    in radius and diameter than a normal dime

    Good points in Fairly good condition I thought> @Type2 said:

    I don't know I have to buy a scale tomorrow I feel like it might wait a little bit more because I set it on top of a normal time and it's wider and thicker

    Be careful about judging thickness as a stronger strike can strike up the rim higher than on a lighter strike. Same amount of metal, just in a different place. Modern Denver coins seem to be stronger strikes than Philadelphia.
