    Roosevelt Dime Error
    Struck on a Nail, MS65

    Undated 10C Roosevelt Dime -- Struck on a Nail -- MS65 PCGS. This spectacular error is one of the most unusual pieces to ever come out of a United States Mint. This zinc-coated sixpenny nail found its way into the coinage production line during the minting of Roosevelt dimes, and apparently escaped through normal distribution channels. We have no doubt that this striking error will be the prize of its new owner when it falls to the auctioneer's hammer. See the informative video on this item produced by Buzz60.com.
