    I just bought these 90% silver webbing and planchet fragments from Bill Fivaz. The planchet and hole sizes are dime-sized. What is most significant is the striations on the webbing and planchet. This is from the minting process in the 1880s and 1890s, as evidenced by parallel striations on weakly-struck Morgans. So these were likely Type 4 Seated Dime planchets and webbing.

    Anyone have pics of seated dimes with the striations or weakly-struck/off-center 1880s/1890s Morgans/Dimes?

    The Morgan pics belong to @Sean5150.
