It also looks plated, I don't see the copper line and it is way to shinny.
I looked real careful, it's not solder, the edges where the whatever it is are plated or something. This is not PMD as far as I know. Still looking for help.
It appears to be PMD, it got plated with something, it's weight should be 2.27 grams, its way to heavy for a normal dime.
OK, here are 3 better photos. Dime on left is the 78, right is a 2011 D.
The 1978 looks not like someone plated it PM, in pic 3 the hair is to fine, if it wasPMD plated, wouldn't the hair be filled in more. and side by side they look identical (to me) as far as surface. is it possible the whole dime somehow got clad? as in photo 2?
Thank you all. Bummer! I respect and value all your opinions.
Till next time
I saw this same dime or one that looked really similar to this one on Ebay a few days ago.
It wasn't my dime, I'm still in the dark here. I've 20x louped it and it looks like the "cud" is from the coin, not a PMD. I'm not arguing with you guys, just telling you what I see. Is there anything I can do to help make it easier to see?
I very much appreciate your help. But if that's the consensus I'm ok with that. :-)
