It appears to be in great condition as of minimal wear. It has soo much wrong with it like what appears to be cud in the G of god making it look like a backwards D. The second 0 in the date is mishapen and has a die gouge? I think. Even the tiny J in the JS is messed up, it’s missing the top half of the J.

    Oldhoopster It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    Sorry, but it is just PMD (post mint damage). It was treated roughly during it's 15 years in circulation. Not a mint error

    Stupid thread wouldn't let me finish typing it then it timed out lol but anyways... The coin isn’t round and has rim damages that does not appear to be post mint damage ( i say this because the ridge lines are straight and no scratches etc). Just like the rest of the coin, no signs of scratching or scraping. Thats just the obverse. There’s a lot more on the reverse. The E in one has Cud piled up where there was a chip and a chip in the I of dime. The e plurbis has a tail coming off the P and ending up in the L. The leaf in the NE quadrant has a scrape or something but I can still see the pattern and outline of the leaf inside the mark as though it had been squished while still soft. There’s much more but i lack the terms used to describe them, sorry still learning them. Thanks for any info u can provide. Oh and I may be kinda new to this site but I did learn a lot from my grandpa over the years since he was an advid coin collector and quite frankly I’m offended that one of you made the assumption that I’m an idiot that doesn’t know the difference between errors on a coin from scratches or scrapes

    The coin shows damage that happened after it left the mint. I don't see anything that looks like an error.

    I'll go out on a limb here and say I see a lot of scratches,scrapes and metal being moved around on the coin. PMD.

    If in doubt and you’re so confident of “errors” then send it in to one of the major TPGs. Even though costly, Consider it the price of education on damage versus mint errors.

    I agree, that coin is just beat up. It is scratched, scraped, gouged, you name it.
