1984 P mint Dime

4 posts in this topic

Sorry in advance I'm a novice. Just started collecting. Just came across 1984 P mint Dime.

Has an unusual mark on the reverse side. Wondering if anyone could help me out. Also believe this to be a double die..?

Welcome to the forum.  Are you talking about the ding on the edge?  If so that is just damage.  I see some doubling on IN GOD WE TRUST but I don't believe that is from a doubled die.  Might be die deterioration or mechanical doubling, I am sure others will be along to verify.

Welcome to the Forum-

First a terminology correction. The proper term is Doubled Die, not Double Die ( a common mistake with new collectors). Also do not handle coins with your bare hands unless by the edges, shoot your photos on a neutral coloured flat surface.

The ding on the rim is just damage from taking a hit, it is only an error if something happens while the coin is in the striking chamber. What you believe is a Doubled Die is called Die Deterioration Doubling caused by the die becoming worn. There is no premium for this.

Feel free to post any other questions you may have.
