1983 P Dime Off-Center VERY Visible FLOW MARKS - DIE DETERIORATION front & back

1983 P Dime Off-Center VERY Visible FLOW MARKS - DIE DETERIORATION front & back

$ 4.99

 It took me along time to find anyone that knew what these marks were and what they meant.  A lot of misinformation out there also.  I found out that when a die is in service for too long, without polishing or retiring, the metal wears on the die and it starts creating phantom double-die effects and also showing stretch-like marks on the face of the coins.  Most coins only have a few marks.

This dime is unusual because there are a lot of stretch marks and on both sides of the coin.  ALSO, the coin is struck off-center, adding to it's rarity.

Please examine the pictures carefully, they are part of the description.  The coin pictured is the one you get.
