    Lyrics Giving this one more chance with lots of hope

    Looked down while walking and picked up what I thought was a penny but it turned out to be a dime please take a look at these pictures I believe this dime has a clad issue. But I'm not sure if there are other issues as well and I would love you guys to take a look at it and let me know if there's any value to this coin. And also please let me know if I'm completely wrong and it's not a clad issue. Again thank you.

    I dont think its damage. Take a loom at the lettering with silver still on it with the copper below it. Note the rim is copper also extremely so

    Also note the copper goes Through the coin and is not exactly the same pattern but very very similar is if these spread out is different on each side it looks to me like the silver is How to say it layering off?

    Hi Lyrics - Can you please crop out all the area around the full photos of your coin (reverse and obverse) when you post your new ones? I can't seem to get in close enough and that would help me.

    I'm also of the opinion that it appears to be environmental damage....

    I believe it to be PMD but at least you're ten cents richer.

    Environmental damage or staining.

    Even though they appear silver, the outer clad layers are made from a 75% copper 25% nickel alloy. When exposed various environmental conditions including soils, the surface can react and turn brown, resembling copper
