    Hello all,

    I purchased a small lot of error coins and amongst them was this Dime. It doesn’t have an obverse but it looks like you can almost see the head of the obverse but also parts of the reverse on it as well. I have not come across this type is there an explanation that anyone might have that happened?

    best regards,

    Would this be cause from two coins being pushed against each other?

    Yes, which is why the letters are reversed.

    If it was done by the die it would be the way it appears on a normal coin.

    Here is how a coin looks

    And here is how the die used to strike the coin would look.

    Dang that makes sense now. I was also questioning the marks on the reverse. To bad it was a nice lot but will have to return it for this reason. These people are getting clever or I’m just not that smart LOL

    Don't worry too much. These get mistaken often for capped dies from what I've seen.

    Glad I could help my friend. You're not dumb, everyone makes mistakes sometimes.

    Have a good night

    That’s what I was thinking or some weird error I haven’t seen. I’ll take it as a learning experience this time. Thanks friend.

    best regards.

    It is a vise job so if you didn’t pay a lot it may be worth keeping as an educational piece.

    Im not so sure this is a vice job. There is no sign on the reverse of foul play. To get the obverse to look like that would take quite a bit of forcecand should smash the reverse a bit too.

    Agreed the coin looks to perfect for it to be man made/altered i think its an authentic error.

    With no disrespect to Evan, I am also curious as I see no apparent rim damage from a second coin as would normally be seen on a vice job.

    This is how the coin looks all the way around. It is also very slightly over its weight that it should be.

    This dime looks legit to me the rim around is as to be expected in my opinion and made as danomite says it happened in his post. I do not see this ever coming out like this if done in a vice with the rim looking the way it does.
    @Fred Weinberg, can you look at this dime in this thread and give an opinion on if it's a clashed cap strike or a vice job please if you have the time? Thanks.

    As @Danomite stated I believe this is the cap due strike error. These are not my pictures but I did win this coin last night on eBay and it has the same error.
