The Dime in question has a Collar Clash
That is called toning. Clad coins change color. Normal natural toning. Environmental toning.
Any other questions? I've been collecting coins for 34 years now. Especially mint errors!
Let me ask you this.. Have you ever seen anyone with this size Mint Error collection?
34 years worth.. Graded, attributed and certified! And I have hundreds more in albums.. You are talking to a genuine specialist. Any more questions?
I'm also a Metal Detecting enthusiast. Over the years I have found thousands of clad coins and nickels with environmental damage. Dark, gold, brown all sorts of colors!
coins are made of metal.
What happens when metal is not protected, such as what happens to cars if their steel bodies were not painted or other coatings?
What happens to copper trimmings on houses over time if not maintained? It starts corroding and turns green.
What happens to nickel, zinc, etc over time ?
they corrode, get toned due to the metal being exposed to certain scenarios.
If you start inventorying *all* of the change that you get you will start seeing this discoloration of various types very often.
This is ammmmmaazzzinngg!! So freaking cool!
Thank you. I really apreciate your answer to my question. Is it rare by chance and does it give my coin any value?
