My husband found this coin in amongst our change. Very weird looking dime with a circle in the center and a starburst pattern coming out from the circle. I never saw a dime like this. The back of it looks normal. It seems to be a little bit thinner than a regular dime too. Anyone ever seen anything like this?? I'll put a link to pictures of it below.

....hubby says it looks too precise for a grinding wheel.

 

It definitely looks like it was done after minting. Not sure I can even speculate on what tools/techniques were used to do a radial waffling like that - looks cool for sure, but not a mint error, IMO.

Thanks for taking a look at it. I thought it looked pretty cool too. I hadn't come across anything that looked similar in minting errors so I kinda figured that someone did it after minting.
