    What you are referring to is known as “spooning” but the rims are usually a little more rounded.

    Agree, just a dryer coin. See these quite often where people think they are errors.
    If you put that dime on top of a regular dime, you will notice that the diameter is slightly smaller which creates the larger rims.
    Keep as a novelty coin. I

    Welcome to the Chat Box
    As mentioned on your other post, please take clear photos of both sides of each coin you are looking to get evaluated  on its on thread. There is no way of telling from the pictures you have posted what you have there. A lot of what I see are only worth face value but there are probably some that will be worth more.

    That is common MD.
    I remember reading on another post that someone did a count and said that over 60% of the quarters that had reverse lettering had MD, so yes, it is common.

    I have asked a mod to move this to the appropriate Forum, this Forum is for registered sets.
    Your coin is just damage and worth  25 cents.
    If someone offered you $10.00, take it and run.

    Greenstang got a reaction from Jfantj in Evaluation Question   
    That is not an error, that is due to overpolishing of the die. Notice how the roof supports and Lincoln are also mostly missing. If it was grease filled, only the initials would be affected.
    This is common on most Memorial Lincolns and adds very little value seeing that they are so common. I think the TPG's have stopped grading them  so you would be wasting your money sending it in..
    That article by Mr.Bill is 9 years old .

    Greenstang got a reaction from Oldhoopster in 1955 Canada Silver Dollar Die Clash Fu Manchu, to grade or not to grade?   
    About the only time a coin is worth getting graded, unless you just want it slabbed for some reason, is if it is worth around $150.00 or more. Silver is always nice because it is always worth the bullion value, no matter the condition.

    Don't forget that mm were hand punched up until 1989 so it is possible for some mm's to be punched deeper than others. It looks like on yours that the shoulder of the punch is showing. Maybe the worker felt a little stronger that day.

    Welcome to the Forum.
    Your coin is just damaged, known as PMD (Post Minting Damage). It has taken several hits, one of which  bent the rim inward.
    In the future, please show both sides of the coin

    If you were to learn how coins were minted, you would know that what you have is impossible to have happened during the striking of the coin. There is no way the rim could be bent while struck in collar.

    Welcome to the Forum
    A picture of both sides will be needed. There  are counterfeits of these cents and would like to eliminate that possibility.
    A side fact:   There are more 1943 copper cents known than 1983, so the odds of even having one let alone two are astronomical.
