Has this been cleaned?

    I was going through my dimes looking for anything that might be worth submitting. I found a nice Roosevelt so I scoped it and noticed all these marks. I’m hoping it’s not cleaned.

    I actually remember pulling this out of a history of dimes set. Still doesn’t mean it wasn’t cleaned :/

    Supermagnification turns up all sorts of stuff. 5x or 10x suffices.

    It doesn't look cleaned and it's not worth submitting. It's a normal circulated silver dime, 1958 minted in Philadelphia. The obverse is showing signs of dark toning on the outer edges.

    I like the look of the coin. The magnified obverse pic in your OP looks like flow lines from the minting process, not cleaning. The reverse has me a bit puzzled.

    Any dime worth submitting would have to be a very high grade.

    The obverse of your first dime shows signs of die deterioration.

    The Mercs are not natural. The Rosie, IDK.

    The reverse is what makes me think it’s cleaned
