    I got this dime from my great uncle for my birthday back in December.

    On the 2x2 he had it in he wrote, "1967 Thin Dime" and "Silver"

    Is what I'm looking at PMD or something else?

    Any and all help is much appreciated.

    I do not posses the capabilities of weighing it. For what it's worth, it's a helluva lot lighter than a normal dime.

    From what I can see in hand it's '67.

    Looks like a silver clad that just got too hot.

    That might explain its appearance on the obverse and reverse but could that explain the thickness and uneven edges?

    I might just do that today, there is a coin shop nearby that I can go to. Thanks.

    Except Kennedy halves were the only business strikes clad in 40% silver in 67 ;)

    You can make a DIY scale from household objects, use a "real" dime for control on the opposite side... it will get you close enough, though with your dime, that thing looks like it shot off the rail just as the train hit it...:D

    Well I went to a coin shop today.
    Dealer looked at it for 10 seconds and told me it was probably dipped in acid. I don't know much about how acid effects coins but that seemed like a logical explanation to me.

    no such animal.


    clad 40% silver were just half $'s.


    This look to be a lead fake.

    I don't see any reeding on the edge.

    US Coins with 40 % silver composition:

    40% Kennedy half dollars, 40% Ike dollars and 40% 1976-S Bicentennial quarter dollars.


    Acid seems plausible and may have contributed to having eaten away at the edges. The images above DO show some vertical patterning around the thicker parts of the edge which may be the remnants of the reeded edge.

    It looks like it spent some time in some corrosive environment. Then someone attempted to clean it up a little.:rolleyes:
    I also doubt it's clad. With the amount of metal removed in a couple places and on the edge, I would think you'd see some copper.
    As for the date, it's up to the imagination.

    Because the date is unreadable, call it a '64 clad error and it'll be worth a fortune on Ebay

    It's just another case of being acid treated only this time someone also applied deep scratches to the obverse and reverse. It's unbelievable how many acid treated coins make their way into these forums. As I just posted earlier on another thread, it gets very tiring to see these listed so much. Everyone, please educate yourself to this very easily recognized post mint damage type. Justing venting some more I guess.

    yeah, I saw that, and my comments remain the same.

    lead fake.
