    Hi guys,

    I have this 2016 P Roosevelt Dime and see that there is some sort of a ridge on the reverse. There is also a ridge at the end of "E" in DIME. What is this?

    Can you tell if it is incused or raised? First glance, it appears to be a stain, but . . . ?

    It is incused in this area. Also at the end of the "E". There is a slight ridge. Can you see it in the photo's?

    can you give us a picture of the edge of the coin also please? Is this two coins stacked or something? It looks odd from the perspective. especially this picture from like 5 o clock to 9 o clock, the edge looks weird. specifically between 6 and 8 o clock.

    that's weird. I'm thinking slightly misaligned reverse die as far as that goes. thanks for the additional pictures. perhaps it's a strike through of a fluid, on the planchet which caused the misalignment? the slight indent is the remanant of where the fluid was,,, maybe.

    I'm stretching here though, and guessing, these last pictures appear as if theres a slight "cupping"or "bowling" of the reverse side....
