    So I saw another dime from 2 years ago on here, but the condition of it was quite worn compared to this one, and the same question I was asked. CM201029-022034015.jpg CM201029-022037016.jpg CM201029-022103018.jpg CM201029-021840004.jpg CM201029-021554002.jpg CM201029-022004008.jpg Does this 1942 mercury dime really say IN COD WE TRUST? If so what kind of value does this misprint have plus the error by the T in LIBERTY?

    Hi. Coins are not printed. They are Struck/minted.

    Sometimes there are worn dies that strike the planchets that have a bit of compacted debris so a small part of a lettervis not formed properly. On your coin it's the G in GOD. Looks loke a C. But it's nothing major and only worth silver melt value since you're showing a winged liberty head dime.

    Sometimes letters can also be altered post mint or damaged in circulation.

    The letter G on Mercury dimes kind of look like a C to start with. Look at pictures online and compare.

    The C is Normal for this issue and I'm not quite sure about issue surrounding the T .

    I dunno about all that but the surfaces look unnatural and polished to me at the very least.
