Hello. Im wondering the value of a dime such as the one seen in "strike it rich with pocket change"(1974 multiple die clash on obverse and reverse) I have one that appears to have been struck with the same dies. I apologize for the poor photos done with my phone. Thank you for your time volunteered here.

Answer
Well, the good news is you definitely have a clashed die dime -- the bad news is you're not going to get rich.

Similar clashed dimes are selling on eBay in the $3 to $8 range.  It's not a major error, so there's limited collector interest.  Still, it's not bad for 10 cents :)

Expertise

My strong familiarity with all U.S. Mint coins, extensive reference library, and close relationships with many other dealers allows me to identify just about any coin made in the USA. I receive regular updates to all the current price guides -- both wholesale & retail -- to provide accurate values. So, with a good description or pictures, I should be able to identify and value any U.S. coin you have.

Experience

I've been a coin dealer since the 1980's and a coin collector since the 1960's. I specialize in U.S. Silver Coins and have an active online website -- The Working Man's Rare Coins -- http://www.workingmancoins.com -- offering information and inventory in U.S. coins.
