Default Oddity Dime

Found this "dime" sort of .. But the reverse is that of a Mercury Dime and
the front Roosevelt .. and that's not all. Rather than the detail being
raised, it is sunken into the coin. Any idea what this is ?? Just someone
having some fun with silver ?? Thanks. diane

Sounds like someone sandwiched the coin between a mercury dime and a Roosevelt
dime and then hit it once with a hammer.

I have heard of this being done with cents.

Forgot to add that it is a mirror image of the coin .. so I guess that is
how that could happen.
