    1989 D Dime back is missing the E on dime - PIC added

    I have a 1989 D dime that has ONE DIM on the backside - no trace of the e in dime. Anyone guess value? Merry Christmas / Holidays

    Could be a grease filled die. Got any pics/scans?

    There is no need to make more than one thread about the same coin.
    I'm sure others will be by to help you with your coin---you might want to try to get better photos.

    how to determine value? not to sell as it took me quite a while to locate coins from looking at enough to make my eyes cross.

    Do I put it in a safe or is the value more like a box on the dresser...?

    The Mint factory has its share of dirt, grease and other lubricants, and metal filings. The recessed areas of the dies sometimes fill up with a combination of this foreign material, preventing the metal of the coins from flowing into the incused areas. This results in weak designs or missing design details. The filled-die coin is one of the two most common types of errors.

    Google what a wonderful thing.

    There's really not much value for this kind of error unless the grease takes out alot of detail i would say yours is a nice one because it took out some letters even through there's not much value for them .

    Well if you decide to sell it you may get 5 bucks on ebay depending who wants it.

    I would say it's a keeper for your collection. I also think it's a good example for a novice to have a learning coin.
