One other question...are dimes notorious for being out of tolerance from true mint weight? Of all denominations, dimes seem to be the most inconsistent
2.268 g +/- 0.091 g
Agree that it may be a Rolled thick planchet, although the definition of such is not precise. In my view, if the thickness exceeds tolerance, then it can be defined as rolled thick. Suggest measuring at 4 places around the circumference with calipers to 2 decimals in mm. Another possibility is a tapered planchet. Expected Thickness = 1.35mm with tolerance: -0.076mm/+0.127mm.
Thank you Pete. I will do just that and post as soon as I can
1.35mm opposite end
The thicker the better in terms of value. If it is slightly heavier and thicker than
the tolerance range, there wouldn't be any or very little value.
But if it is much heavier and thicker above the top end of the range, then it has value. Paddyman would know.
but so little that it would have no premium as such, imo .
