Dime with end roll end markings.

Post by Dave B » Mon Aug 10, 2020 9:37 pm

I have a few of these dimes and have collected them over the years...I thought at first it was created by some guy in a shed with issues but having thought about these anomalies for some years I thought maybe ...I could be wrong...that since the dimes of various years all had markings on the reverse only that these scratches could possibly be markings during the rolling process. Possibly something at the end of the roll while being packaged (rolled) into the mint casings...I'm no expert but some of these I have collected over the past 30 or so years of either the guy in the shed is still crazy or I'm way off the mark...opinions anyone?

The lines were not caused by the rolling process or from being on the end of a roll. A coin wrapping machine leaves a mark closer to the rim.
The first and third picture because of the inconsistency of the rings look like deliberate damage. The second picture outer rings MAY have been caused by some sort of vending machine but I'm not sure what caused the marks in the middle.
