2011-P Dime

Do you have a dime and want to know its value? Leave a comment

Just a normal dime maybe with a slight railroad rim but that gives it no extra value. It is just the first 2011 dime I found and it was all shiny.

One good reason to pluck new dimes put of your change is all the torch lines are well defined, which adds value.

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 10 Cents / United States
Year: 2011 P
Mintage: 748,000,000 (estimated)
Metal: 91.67% Copper, 8.33% Nickel
Value: $0.10  in AU-50

Still have not found a 2009 nickel

Do you have a U.S. dime and want to know its value? Leave a comment / question and I will do my best to find out the price and history for you.

Fancy that! I just found a 2011 D dime in my change yesterday.

Railroad rim? What's that?

Man said...

Fancy that!
Indeed!

Railroad rim? What's that?

That is when there is an appearance of two edges.

Railroad is a term for partial collar error which gives two levels on the edges of a coin.

But it can also be used to describe the reverse picture I posted look at the top of the dime it look like there is two outer rims.

Railroad rims is not an official term and more like coin slang.

Man said...

Oh I would say the correct term for what I have is a collar die clash error, which does not sound as pretty.

I have a dime (1983-P) that looks like its thicker than normal and it is very shiny. Also it has a "railroad rim" from about 9 o'clock to 11 o'clock on the back and the letters are a little thicker than normal on the back.

Is it worth more than 10 cents?

Probably a Misaligned Strike, no extra value.

That said weigh it just in case.

It has to be weighed to know what type of error it truly is.

They start at $50 depending on type of error.

I have a 2004 P copper dime I took it to a coin dealer and it weighed 2.5 grams just like a penny and he said he has never seen anything like this is there any posibility you may know what it is worth?

Man said...

2004 P copper dime I took it to a coin dealer and it weighed 2.5 grams

As far as I know this type of error is not possible.

Was this to be verified it be $10,000+.

That said it is probably a Missing Clad error on both sides about $400 but it would weigh less?

At this point it needs to verified by a company like PCGS.

It may also be an Improperly Annealed error when a coin is heated too much bring out the copper.

Hello, I recently found a 2012 dime with partial clad layer missing on the front. It is over the '012' of the date as well as the 'D' proof mark. Both can still be clearly read. Any idea if this has any value? I can send photos if necessary.
Thank you very much for any information you may be able to share, have a wonderful day!

Partial Missing Clad error about $1.00 in high grade.

These really have no extra value unless the entire side is missing the cladding.

Thanks very much for the info!

Ya I found a 2011 P Roosevelt Dime that look like copper on the front and the back only half of it looked like copper. I weighed it and it was 2.3 but it is an unreliable scale. From everything I was reading online I figured it was something done to it post mint or it was just dirty. So I got a rag and put a small amount of tarnex on it and wiped the coin for about 3 seconds and when I looked at it it still had a copper tone but it just looked cleaner. If you have ever cleaned a copper penny with tarnex and seen how it immediately looks new but a tiny bit dull that's exactly what the dime now looks like. But if I look at it with a loup it's not a solid copper color it's blotchy. Any thoughts? Thanks

Were it a real error it would weigh 2.1g or less.

I suspect damage.

Still an expert may need to see it in hand, but since you cleaned it it would lose most of its value.

I found this interesting little 1971 D dime that weighs 2.1g the reverse image looks like it has a big maybe "1"? And the rest looks like it was almost .. Wiped off... Then the normal reverse image printed on top... If that makes sense? If I could post pictures I would...

Damaged, someone shaved it, stamped it, and try to make a pendant.
No extra value.

Man said...

Not possible, in high grade about $5.00 at most.

Man said...
