    With the attached photos, I am looking for guidance on how to properly attribute this dime. There is no Blakeskly effect I can see and the reverse has a weak die strike from k3 to k6. I believe its not the cause of PMD but some strike where the planchet was thin or ragged, thoughts?

    Interesting! I think you may be right that it's not PMD, maybe.

    I think you have a legit mint error coin. I would call it a Thin Planchet Defect.
    The weight should be low. Some may claim it to be an end of strip planchet.
    That would be speculative, so call it what you know it is.

    If I had to guess, I would say struck through. Possibly a plastic coated stranded electrical wire or just the plastic stripped off the end of the wire.

    From the edge photo it appears to me to me a mint error. The planchet in the affect area was probably on the thin side but that’s a guess based on photos.

    Thanks all, I am leaning towards sending to ANACS as I can see both sides of the analysis. Specifically, why is there still a reeded edge on the thin planchet area from the side view photo, but then again a PMD would be hard to also create the weak strike on the reverse.

    Weird! I'd guess it's an error, but I got no idea what it could possibly be

    Maybe it's worth enough for some new choos.
