    I think it is a double denomination! It looks like a 1980 nickel and It weighs 4.83 grams. But on the reverse side I can see "ONE DIME" under the Monticello. I can make out a few more details here and there.

    Does anyone else see this?

    I'm afraid you're seeing things. It's nothing but a corroded nickel which says (or once said) FIVE CENTS under Monticello, like all of them.

    If y'all were both bodybuilders, I suppose I could crack a joke about "two all-beef Paddies, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions – on a sesame seed bun." :p

    yes it has some damage but it definitely has the reverse side of a dime on it. I can see every word and almost every detail. Some parts are very light, but its there

    You are trying too hard buddy..
    There is nothing but a worn Nickel..
    If you really think there is a Dime on Nickel then think about this.. A Nickel Planchet would not fit into a Dime chamber when being struck.. So it is not a Mint Error..
    You will never convince anyone here what you claim to see and have.. Just like all the other coins you have posted so far.. Nothing

    You're seeing what you want to see in random detail. It's exactly the same as seeing (religious figure of your choice) on your toast.

    Since this is the size of a nickel, and the weight of a nickel (minus the losses due to corrosion), how do you imagine that it could be struck with the features of a dime? It couldn't have been a dime struck with nickel dies; it's far too large and heavy. It couldn't have been a nickel struck with dime dies; it would never have fit. That leaves only imagination.

    As mentioned, you are trying to hard to convince yourself and everyone else of what isn't there.

    If you TRULY believe in what you see, and all the experts have rejected it and you believe that they are wrong .. then send it in to be graded. but be PREPARED to have it totally REJECTED ... and you'll still have to pay all the fees.

    But, you may want to look at a less damaged nickel for comparison.

    I was thinking road rash. But the light weight and mottled appearance does
    suggest acid. If there is an impression of a dime (I don't see it). If the letters are reversed, a dime was squeezed into the nickel with a vise or pliers.
    If the lettering for the dime are correct, perhaps a better photo with lighting can show it. The dime can't be struck on a nickel since it won't fit.

    V. Kurt Bellman Yes, I'm blunt! Get over your "feeeeelings".

    You need to put down whatever you're drinking, go outside for about 10 deep cleansing breaths, go down to the liquor store, and get a bottle of Buffalo Trace Kentucky Bourbon. 'Cuz after all, if you're gonna look at coins drunk, at least have some good stuff.

    You mean, your wife emptied out your wallet and told you nothing was in it?

    I guess it was pretty much empty before she was my ex. She kept the paper and I kept the coins.
