Unknown dime,trying to id
Hi all. Found this dime in a string roll today. Huge amount of wear and trying to id. I'm thinking it's a barber but hard to tell. Obverse is worn smooth. Reverse has faint detail showing. Any thoughts?

Dominican Republic 10 centavos, 90% silver. 1937-1961 type.
I can see the "Patria" over the shield on your coin.
This is a duplicate of the post in the CRH forum.
1/100 of an American dollar is a cent. It is NOT a penny. The word penny is used by several other countries, such as Great Britain, to denote their smallest denomination. In order to be numismatically correct, you must use the term cent to describe the American coin.

Cool. Thanks sag. I wasn't thinking foreign. It did have a silver ping and you say 90% so goes in with my foreign silver.
