Yes, a MAD
It's off center - some design elements (lettering on rev., date on obv.)
are missing -
The heat and other environmental damage to the coin
might have caused the 'clamshell' as part of it, but it
would not be certifiable because I'm...
Hard to know for sure due to the circulation of the
coin, but it looks like a circ. 'black beauty' to me.
Looks like a 'struck thru thinning die cap' error to me.
The Die Cap has thinned out so much from previous strikes
that it's very thin, and the...
Those dimes have no premium as MAD's, imo.
Looks like two different coins to me.
(same error, two diff. pieces)
If you can buy the major off center dimes for
$10 or thereabouts, that's a very good price, imo
Nice Ragged End Clip
Looks like it's within Mint tolerance, which officially is 27 degrees.
I've found that almost all collectors want a Minimum of 45 degrees.
Official US Mint tolerance is 27 degrees.
They are not collectable, I've found, unless
they are at least 45 degrees rotated.
Hope this info helps.
As PM98 said, it's struck thru grease/machinery oil. Nice example.
(and before someone says it, it's not a Die Cap)
Sounds like your 1980-D dime has two letters missing due to a
'filled die' (grease or machinery oil, etc.) - this is a common error type and...
Sorry - it's mechanical doubling, not a doubled die.
If the reeding is normal, then it's a
minor mis-aligned obv. die strike.
Looks like a struck thru, but not a rim burr.
Are both photos of the same coin?
I assume not, as the rim around "IN" has
nothing to do with...
It could be a counterfeit, but it doesn't look like it from the striking characteristics.
If it's not re-processed (which I think it is), it's...
The coin looks plated, and I think it's
got plating issues.
I've never seen any 1943 Cent with those
'die cracks' or surface issues like that.
