    Found this strange looking dime today. This is my third post and I have no idea what this coin is all about however you all are the experts and I appreciate any feedback you can provide. I want to Thank everyone for commenting on my recent posts. I’ve had tips and learned a few things and loved the comment on a penny I posted CRAPPY LINCOLN.....cracked me up. 8FF9B7DA-5053-4D2A-BBF1-CADF75AEFEB9.jpeg FE790A3D-DABB-4AF7-B0EA-98E5EBCFF47C.jpeg 64460D41-A6B3-48A3-BF1E-56747C682628.jpeg 0074B473-4F05-45C5-9F6A-DC6CF6B38F31.jpeg 7E9E9007-4394-4981-9BBD-C36FB1C5E23F.jpeg C3050018-BA81-408C-9288-E81B415F0C39.jpeg 7A3C29F8-0551-4BEF-B26D-1AF316EC7D7D.jpeg B49D5474-9829-4F7A-93D5-01ECC6535798.jpeg

    Don't worry, Cooper understands.

    This one looks like it was outside for a while. More recently, it looks like it was scraped by an aggressive roll crimper on the reverse.

    Verdict? damaged

    1970 Philadelphia (had no mint marks). Yours is environmentally damaged along with other damage. Just a regular user coin.

    Environmental toning damage to the Cupro-Nickel clad layer.. Exposure to the elements.

    Clad coins, nickels and pennies get this dark look when they are in the ground for a period of time. Most likely found with a metal detector. On your dime, it still looks like some dirt is still on it

    No! No! No! It's Crappy Zincoln!

    As others have said, your dime has undergone environmental discoloring.

    If you like cupro-nickel coins missing a clad layer, you'd probably like this one. I found it in a $100 Mixed P&D Bag that I got from the Mint in 2004. @Cheech9712 likes it.

    FYI - If you spot an error in your title within a few minutes, you can use the "Thread Tools" at the top to correct the title. If you spot an error in the body of your post, you can use the "Edit" function at the bottom of your post.

    I'll give you a pass (not that you asked for one) for any mistakes in posting or knowledge simply because of the hat you are wearing. :)
