    Does a worn die cause this effect ? It appears the two letters on this 1964 D dime have become one. WIN_20200216_14_16_10_Pro.jpg WIN_20200216_14_17_47_Pro.jpg WIN_20200216_14_17_59_Pro.jpg WIN_20200216_14_15_19_Pro.jpg

    physics-fan3.14 You got any more of them.... prooflikes? Supporter

    Yes, it's possible. However, even on brand new dies like the one I show, the letters are just about joined already.

    The combination of die wear and actual wear on the coin can produce the conjoined look you show.

    I'd venture to say your dime took a hit that caused that damage, so PMD.
