Now, that's a broadstrike! Through a capped obverse die, no less -- heck, is that even a nickel planchet? Or more than one? Weight/diameter?
Have you got a diameter and weight for it ?
All very good questions. The coin is slabbed by PCGS and unless the diameter and weight are on the slab label the answers will remain unknown. Although an approximate diameter could be determined the weight would still be a mystery.
Just from inspection, does it look like a single planchet squished thin?
I'd sort of assume that if it were anything other than standard nickel-planchet weight, they'd note that on the slab. So given your phrasing, I guess you don't have the slab in hand yet? Not even a photo of it?
(May we see the reverse of the dime?)
Call PCGS & ask them the weight of an empty nickel holder (someone should be able to do that for you), then subtract that weight from the total weight of your slab & that should get you a good approximation. (Alternately, you could free a 5 cent specimen you already have & weigh the remnants of that tomb; then do the subtraction)...if you really wish to know...
The 1919 was a Clamshell Lamination with the piece that was laminated detached.
Here you go.
