    I came across this dime with some odd details.

    1. The J in JS is missing, and the S is only partial.

    2. There is a tiny S at the bottom of the coin, but that may be a die crack shaped like a S. It's in the rim just under where the JS should be. Regardless of what it is, it's interesting and fun to look at, because it's a perfect S.

    3. There is definitely something under the 4 in the date.

    4. I'm not positive, but the D mint mark looks extened on the upper right edge.

    5. There is a tiny die mark in the lower half of B in LIBERTY

    6. What are the lines that run through the "IN GOD WE TRUST", is that time damage or something else?

    What do you see? Weight: 2.28g

    Enlarge the photos too see, I hope they are good enough.
    Thanks for your input.

    Cropping and posting full-size...

    1) some grease in the die
    2) Don't see it
    3) Don't see it, but it is a MAD (Misaligned Die)
    6) I think just scratches

    The missing and weak letters are from a grease or debris filled die.

    Mushy dimes are fairly common. Meow would like to see what mushy dimes look like in MS66 or better.

    1. It could be grease-filled die, but more than likely the “J” was obliterated from circulation wear. The “S” has been partially obliterated as well.
    2. The tiny S is more circulation wear damage.
    3. No, there is not anything definite under the 4. It is more than likely more wear damage.
    4. I don’t see any extension of any type on the mint mark.
    5. Die chip in B/LIBERTY.
    6. Those lines are die scratches or heavy die polishing lines.

    I see another D on it. It's faint, but it's to the left. That would make it a missing J, partial S, double D.
