Yeah, but you triggered me. Ha.
The US Mint made no coin with mintmarks in 1965, 1966, and 1967, due to them trying to suppress coin collectors removing coins from circulation.
Thank you Chris that's helpful and glad to hear an opinion that isn't just a straight " oh it's not silver even though it has silver edges" opinion. I mainly made this profile to ask about if it's a possibility to have a dime with no copper edges but still be copper. Cause everywhere i read it says you look at the edge of the coin to identify a silver coin.
I'll look the number up again in the PCGS data base I'm pretty sure it says phili
https://www.usmint.gov/learn/collecting-basics/mint-marks it is the gov't rationalization...
Yes, silver was being removed and more collectors were pulling coins from circulation, but the mint was also on kind of a vendetta to try to shut down numismatics then and do whatever they could to try to make them uncollectable...
But as you can see, they finally realized it wasn't that efficient and they could make money catering to modern collectors.
Yes I believe it was made in San Francisco, CA. So I might have the only silver edge SMS coin?
Resistance is futile
Thank you that was interesting.
Personally, I think the pics show that something in the holder or gasket is giving you a false impression that the edge doesn't show copper. The "reeding" in your pics doesn't look normal. But nobody can tell for certain from the pics, if we're looking at the edge of the insert or the coin.
You are claiming that have a very rare and potentially valuable coin. Anything like this requires extraordinary proof. In your case, there were a number of posts that told you how to easily get that proof. I suggest that you follow the recommendations, or keep quiet. The more you keep screwing around, the more people are going to get tired of you and tell you where to put your coin.
Just my opinion.
Yes, that is true. But sometimes in the minting process, the clad layer at the edge is very thin or 'missing', so to speak (not observed or barely can be observed). You also need to recognize a silver coin vs the appearance of a clad one. And if your coin was silver, it would not be silver only on the edge. Go look at ways to tell, such as putting tissue paper over it, and maybe compare to that over an actual silver one, or look at other dimes from that year and 1964 raw and then re-look at your coin.
No disrespect, and yes it is 'possible' to come across the only one minted if there was one stray one minted, but it is not likely.
A quick google search shows that the 1965 SMS were minted in San Francisco. Mint marks were not used from 1965-67
If it was struck on a planchet intended for another country's coins it could be possible to have a base metal coin without a copper core.
Yes, and that would be an error. But I don't find a lot of viable candidates for that for a 1965 dated US Dime finding a stray foreign planchet and still having dime size and appearance.
Now you're comparing Granny Smiths with Red Delicious.
