    Really? I can't decide if it is legit. The letters from the Dime are not backwards or incused. Interesting.

    Please provide more pictures.

    Can't get my head round that. Is it even possible for the devices around the outside of the cent to fit inside the rim of the dime the correct distances away?

    I can ask for Pics but I can't think of any more than what's been presented . I asked to send it in and I'm just waiting for his answer . He
    s not selling it just passing it on. So, I don't think he is in a rush to get it done . That's what I get from his post .

    It looks like it was struck by the cent dies first, then the dime. It would be impossible at that point to fit into a dime sized collar.

    It's a deceptive fake.

    It looks real but the only thing I can think of is it had help from a mint employee. Nothing is backward. Roosevelt’s profile is included, like a clash but all of the letters are raised. The first 3 digits of the date are the same on the dime and the cent.

    Looks like a genuine cent struck over a previously struck dime, which can happen. The 17.91 mm dime expanded a bit under the blow to accommodate most of the 19.1 mm cent design, but the reeded edge of the dime was not crushed flat in the plain collar. A perfectly legitimate mint error, and a good one!

  10. This is a very legit mint error, and is not the first one to be found. There are at least two others. It's a Lincoln cent struck over a previously struck Roosevelt dime. Google or Bing '11 cent coin' to see more. It's a keeper!

    Wow.. Thank you for your information.. Most of us know about the 11 Cent coin since we've been collecting mint errors for decades!

    We are just trying to determine if it's legit or not o_O

    Mornin' all -

    Looks fine to me - the 1st strike of the Dime gives
    the strong reeding - and the photo shows it very 'strong'

    By the way, there are more than two of them - I'd guess that
    there are at least 1,000 double denomination Cent on Struck Dimes.

    Maybe I'm suddenly dyslexic but the "In God We Trust" on Lincoln's head is backwards. What does that mean if not a vise job?

    The experts have spoken, it's real. Seal it, keep it, show it. Great find, thanks for sharing.

    It means the coin is upside down. If you rotate the coin 180 degrees it will read correctly. LOL, Sorry Steve but I had to laugh.

    @Collecting Nut, I don't think you laughed out loud as much as I did! Sheesh. Maybe there's a different word to describe me other than "suddenly dyslexic."

    The real question should be, when the coin is spent will the cashier credit the purchase for 10¢ or 1¢ since the register has no 11¢ key? ;)

    Beautiful error. Thanks for posting @SensibleSal66

    I did laugh out loud but I was alone when I did laugh. I just figured you had the same problem I’ve experienced a few times. They are called senior moments. Lol
