    Found this 1838 small stars dime the other day. Looking at it further, the dark spot under liberty’s elbow, I believe is the die clash making it a partial drapery variety. Thoughts?Either way, it’s a keeper for me. 2B03FFF3-23D9-4CE0-9AE5-BF76CBC0FB11.jpeg 0DF58253-099E-46A0-A5FB-7E85E9CFF915.jpeg

    Not sure on the drapery but it’s a sweet original dime. Nice find!

    Mild corrosion, environmental. Nice coin @NorCal

    I don’t think it’s the die clash, partial drapery variety or more accurately, die state. That is above the surface of the coin like other devices.

    Good to know. I was just wishing that it was anyway.
