A Striking, Beautifully-colored, Improperly Annealed Roosevelt Dime. Definitely Worth a Look.

    I am guessing someone submitted this mistakenly thinking (or hoping) it was missing both clad layers, which there are few of and sell for several hundred dollars and higher. Either way, it is definitely one of the nicest improperly annealed coins I have ever seen with a stunning copper color. Not too often you see one this uniform in color, and you seldom see genuine improperly annealed dimes. Picked it up for $30, which is less than having it graded let alone adding two-way shipping. Enjoy!

    Both nice. How can you tell it is I.A. and not E.D.?
    Do they throw the (sheet/roll?) of planchets away at the mint when they are over cooked?

    Well, for one, environmentally damaged coins don't have much - if any - Mint luster

    Oldhoopster It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    @Bee23 yours has environmental damage. You can tell the diff by the edge

    In most cases, the surfaces have 'luster'
    on a genuine mis-annealed planchet,
    while those with Environmental surface
    damage have no luster;

    I also looked up luster and it says : soft glow or sheen ,or shine just what I was describing it’s way better to see it in person I’m just gonna take it to someone and let them see it because I truly believe this is not environmental damage just looks different

    It is damaged. Probably buried in soil for a while or dropped down a coal mine shaft.

    So then if I would clean this would come off? And what would I clean it with

    If it were a genuine error - which it is not - and then you cleaned it, it would still be worth 10 cents. Just take our word: it is damaged!

    20190329_110423.jpg 20190325_213358.jpg Check these out. The top 2 are environmental damaged and the one on the bottom isn't. I found the bottom one metal detecting the other day. I call it " Black Eyed Roosevelt "
