PCGS 10c 1976 Roosevelt Dime on Panama 1/10 Balboa Planchet MS-63 BN


1976 Roosevelt dime struck on a Panama 1/10 Balboa planchet. The coin is copper, and is the size of a dime. It is the only example of this off-metal type we've seen. Additionally, there are very few off-metal Roosevelt dimes for the entire series, which is due to the coin's small size making it unlikely that another planchet (which would have to be it's size or smaller) would find it's way into the striking chamber to be struck. Very scarce, and also a bicentennial year coin!
