    So I have a 2013 D Dime that has what appears to be another letter with the D. I had it looked at from a coin dealer and I don't really agree with what he said. If I could have other opinions on it that would be wonderful

    Definitely not any type of letter added at the time of minting.

    Given that mint marks are no longer hand punched, something like does not seem possible directly from the mint.

    What did the coin dealer say about it? And did they offer to buy it right after that?

    He said that it appears to be a mark from someone cleaning it and that it wasn't worth anything over face value, but did off me .50 for it (just thought it was a bit strange) I am perfectly fine with it being nothing but why offer me .40 over value for something that is "nothing"...
    But at the same time he checked a penny I had and told me to hang on to it because was worth something.

    Looks interesting but two some of the purists on this site, England makes pennies, the US makes cents :) and AFAIK this is after the date the mint marks were added at the die stage, so I don't think it is a D/D, considering it is a Zincoln, probably a plating issue or deterioration.

    @Sschlee welcome to CT. I always love seeing females in the hobby. We have a few here, and yours and their opinions, help keep things moving forward on this site.
    Thank you for your post and questions. I too, would be wondering why a coin store owner would say, "It's nothing," and then turn around and offer over face value. Personally, I wouldn't trust that person.

    Right now, my vision isn't what it should be, due to eye strain, so I'm going to be honest and not even guess on what is there, but others will continue to post their opinions.

    I can offer the following suggestion, that might help many on this site.

    For the best results, you should post "in focus," FULL IMAGE photos (after you upload your photo, two buttons appear: Thumbnail and Full Image, click Full Image and your photo appears full size on your post and are easily enlarged by clicking on it). Photograph coins on neutral backgrounds like black, grey, or white. Crop out superfluous background so just the coin shows (you can use for free), and post photos with correct orientation so members don't have to turn their computer in some awkward fashion to view it properly. While it isn’t always necessary, it is nice to show both the obverse and reverse, even if your question is just about one side. Members can often give more valuable information having both sides to evaluate. Add close ups of areas you have questions about and make your questions as definitive as possible so we know what you are asking for. And try to have the best lighting possible to show the most favorable photo of the coin. Hope this helps in the future. Good luck.

    Hope that helps, but any questions about posting, please just ask.
