    I forgot I had this till I stumbled across it recently. I held on to it all this time cause it was neat. I thought it was just worn down but the letters are what I think are called double strike and the d is too. I need to weight it I suppose. Any thoughts?

      I am not seeing where this is double died.

      This is double die: https://www.thespruce.com/doubled-die-coins-768451

      Not even a broadstrike; postminting damage.

      My terms may be off but those are the ones closest to explaining. Besides I've seen alot of fat and filled in lettering as double strikes. If that's not the term then what would it be? Also was wondering how could this be post damage like an example for instance. I am asking in a blunt no nonsense way not with attitude. That would be caps and exclamation points.lol

      This is more along the lines of what you have.

      Experience and understanding of the minting process helps teach your eye to pick up on the clues.

      I will give you a perfect example of how this would be post damage and my example accounts for a major portion of damage. Change counting machines. Plain and simple, stated without attitude as you say and I mean no disrespect. Your coin is a good example of damage from a coin counting machine. Banks use them and businesses use them. This coin is neither double die nor is it double struck. If you still feel it is unique perhaps taking it to a professional to be examined would be a good idea. I am sure they probably charge more than a penny but at least you would have a satisfactory answer. Either way good luck with it.

      @fhrjr2, I disagree, the circular line that a coin wrapping matching makes on coins when crimping the roll ends would just be on one side. I believe this coin is a dryer coin showing edge wear on both obverse and reverse.

      (Also I believe OP was referring to themselve, and not how anyone was posting here...).

      Dryer. That would explain it . Thanks :) very appreciated

      Happy to help. Keep checking your change, there are errors out there :)

      Tube the machines I refer to are not machines that roll change. They simply count it. They have a slide kicker that causes wear front and back over time. I have a machine that rolls change and it is not a culprit for this type of wear.
    11. Denise777, 3 years ago
      Your response makes the perfect sense especially with the link. I have some more I would like to show you
    12. TubeAmp TubeAmp, 3 years ago
      Yes I know the difference... still not coin counter damaged, they don’t chamfer the edge, but clothing dryers do.

      Denise777 post away!

      Tubeamp allow me to differ with you on two points. Clothes dryers have a slide kicker and when did you ever see a penny used in a clothes dryer?
    19. TubeAmp TubeAmp, 3 years ago
      Lol! Oh jeeez. It’s coins left in pockets that get tumbled, not the coin mechanism that causes the damage. They get wedged in the beater bars of the drum over and over again...

      Well in 70 years I never washed my change to that extent. I have used change counters and rollers but never washed or dried them to this point. Doesn't begin to sound logical but I will take your word. I have microwaved moldy 100 dollar bills to make them crisp though. Forgot I hid them where it was damp
    21. TubeAmp TubeAmp, 3 years ago
      I posted a link about that shows other dryer coins. It’s not just a single trip in the dryer that causes this damage. It’s those dryers that make all sorts of clinking sounds, they have coins trapped in the fins, over time they get damaged and by shear odds manage to slip back out the same gap they originally slipped in.

      I understand but the dime you posted was certainly dryer food. No issue. I don't buy or collect coins anymore. Can't take it with me. I just gave away a VF shield nickle. When a birthday or anniversary comes up and I am stumped for what to give as a gift. I go find a 100 year old coin or bill from the same year. Not only is it a gift it will grow in value. All coins have a history but some people see something that isn't there. Have a good day and give a coin, it will be remembered.

      TubeAmp I am still not going to dry my coins in a dryer. I will continue to hang them out on the clothes line. For God sake using the dryer might cause shrinkage.

      You laugh, but the Westin St. Francis hotel on Union Square, San Francisco, has been washing and drying all of their coins since something like 1938...
