Have a blank coin and want to know how much it's worth? Leave a comment
First blank coin I got in my change ever. Just a few days ago I was at the store and decided to use cash, which I have not been doing lately, when I instantly saw this kind of yucky dime. At first I thought it was weakly struck or damaged. Still hopeful I brought it home, shook off all the loose dirt, and weighed it. Turns out it was real.
One side is a bit "rusty" with what appears to be water spots. Both sides are very scracthed and there are some rim dents. The edge is not reeded but you can clearly see the clad layers.
It weighs between 2.26-2.27 grams because my scale kept going up and down by 0.01 gram. That said a normal dime weighs 2.27 grams so it could not be shaved. The size is slightly smaller but within normal limits.
Never seeing a blank in hand but having a few other planchets I am fairly sure this is a Type 2 blank planchet. Type 2 means the rim was upset or formed enough to be a bit concave. The Type 1 Blank was just punched out and would be completely flat. So a coin goes from flat sheets to punched out blanks to planchets with slight rims and then they get stamped into coins.
Here's the stats...
Error: Blank Planchet Type II
Type/Country: 10 Cents / United States
Year: Unknown (1965-2012)
Metal: 91.67% Copper 8.33% Nickel
Value: $1.75 in VF-20
