This is a Roosevelt Dime that I found in some pocket change. I wanted to post it on here when I saw one that I could finally compare it to.. Everyone was criticisizing her post, implying that the coin was either manmade,or a fake. I would like to dispell that "myth" that has arisen over this coin. I do believe that this coin is genuine,not a fake,or man made. My pictures do not do this coin any justice at all. So, when I get a better camera,or I figure out how to get a better picture of this unique coin,maybe I can show the coin with a lot more detail. The reverse side of My coin looks just like any other coin, and the obverse side is Not upside down like the other member's coin,but just like a regular dime. (When you flip the coin from top to bottom,the other side is right side up). Personally, I have Never seen another coin like this one. On the front(obverse) side of my coin you can see just a portion of Roosevelt's face (just the center) with his ear,eye and part of his nose visible. There is also a faint outline of his head (hard to see in this picture). But the difference between the other member's coin, and mine ... Her's seems to be a more rounded circle that shows a little more of Roosevelt's face,while mine is more of an abstract shaped circle. (I just thought I would point out the differences between the two) Thanks for looking at my post,and maybe somewhere along the line,we can figure out the origin of this Unique and collectible coin.

    Thank you for your reply to my post, Rob.
    Do you know who does this,and how much does it cost ? I've just started to collect coins,and I don't know where to go for this.
