Hello everybody thanks for stopping by. I found this 1996D Dime in a roll of coins i got from my bank and didn't have a clue why it looked liked it did. I think someone might have just damaged it but I'm not sure. I love the expertise of so many people in this forum so its always appreciated. I did look up some information on discolored dimes...and saw a website that said a very very rare assurance happens when the metals put in the dime don't mix properly. It also said very rarely will the nickel doesn't catch or it just eventually fades off when its not suppose to. Which makes the Copper Clad Dime. Well if anybody has input i'd love it and thanks so much again for stopping by and as always "HappyHunting" Also sorry I really tried to get the right pics and angels to show the color but not sure the copper color comes threw like it does in-person.
