    Is this 2015 P dime an error? 15265891985722337736553644934044.jpg 15265893313588465655852122635772.jpg 15265894035765710674693884079894.jpg

    Worn Die Strike. Struck through debris

    Minor issue.

    I've found a handful of these. Seems like a common thing for the 2015 dime.

    It wasn't struck through anything. The weakness is entirely due to die deterioration.

    The Obverse? Struck through grease on the weak lettering?

    No. The thin, abnormally weak lettering is due to recession of the field portion of the die. This is "design-devouring die wear".

    Thanks Mike.
    That's a new definition I/we can use.
