It looks to me like the top nickel plating peeled of or is peeling off, letting the copper plate show through. I wouldn't sent it in, as the cost would far exceed the less-than-a-buck value. This may have been the original owner's attempt at an experiment.

It does look like the top layer is off, but it almost looks like it was then painted with nail polish. Although it could be an attempt to replate it that didn't work. I'd go with someone tried an experiment....

You might never know exactly what happened to cause this but the fact that it could not
have happened during the striking of the coin defaults it to damage. Value 10 cents

I found a 2011 without the edging so far it looking like a gas pocket blew, the one I have has been sent to CCCS as it has no edging

CCCS has returned my 2011 dime and presumes it to be acid wash? I am confused as to how the plating process looks as though it never took place after stamping. I use to plate car bumpers so I still ask here for help.

Coins are plated before they are minted so if it happened after the coin was struck, it would be damage, no matter how it happened. Sorry you wasted money getting it graded.

Oh what a shame to have sent it in and lost some money.
These show up from time to time here.

I was happy to get an answer from CCCS but not one I expected. I will hold on to it in the event there is another few show up.
