    Dime with soft strike? or what?

    I got this dime in a CWR today and as I was checking for a 2019 or 2020 D I saw that while the rim, front and back, and the Head and torch were sharp, the "IN GOD WE TRUST" the Date the mintmark designers initials and the word Liberty on the front are all soft and on the reverse it is really noticeable on the "ONE DIME" I haven't seen wear like this where the head is nice and sharp a good rim but the aforementioned parts soft

    Is this just wear or is it a soft strike (unlikely with the sharp parts) or grease on the die or what?

    Personally it looks like the 2015 might be doubled?

    In the pic it looks like it but under 10x no I would say not. There is distortion there but I don't see any doubling. I think it must be struck through grease

    I too think it's a grease error. I have found many like this from the mid-to-late 2010's. They are cool for the collection, but probably not worth anything. Guess quality control doesn't care as much as they used to.
