If it is a real Canadian dime, and only stamped on one side, it is an ERROR COIN, errors come in many shapes and sizes, but a full unstamp on one side is really in error, go show it to someone at a stamp and coins store. however don't sell it there, ask what they will give you for it, to get an idea of what its worth, usually double what they offer
A coin that has been stamped twice.
Numbers on a coin usually signify the year it was minted.
The coin was struck over a 1941 Canadian quarter. It takes a keen eye to see the print of the Canadian coin on the American coin. A 1941 Canadian quarter was made of silver and the American quart was a clad coin (copper line in the reeded edge). So, it would seem finding silver 1970-D (no copper line) would be easier to see than the faint imprint of the Canadian quarter.
1¢. The extra letters were added privately, after the coin was minted, and that means it's considered to be an altered or damaged coin.
Check with any local coin collector for sure, but this coin can be worth a LOT of money.

That is a coin that was stamped in 2002 to commemorate the 50th aniversary of the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. The P indicates that it is a plated steel coin, and not a zinc alloy coin as some others stamped that year were. Its value is about 10 cents.
It could be a double-strike which means that the coin was stamped more than one time. Do some research or take it to your local coin dealer.
Someone used a metal punch to put their initials (or something similar) onto the coin. Unfortunately that makes it a damaged coin with no collector value.
No. It is a British coin.
yes, his portrait was struck on a Canadian coin.
The 395 means how much pure silver is in the coin. It was stamped on by the manufacturer when the coin was made and it was possible to measure the amount.
The design on the back of the coin is the Canadian Coat of Arms.
It's worth a whole cent. The fingerprint isn't stamped in but was etched when someone handled it with dirty fingers. Over time, the oils from your skin will react with the metal in the coin, actually eating into the surface of the coin, which may make it look like the fingerprint was stamped into the coin. This is considered damage to the coin and can easily make the coin worthless to collectors.
A coin stamped with 1789 with a profile of George Washington is not worth any monetary value. This type of coin was stamped privately and is commemorative.
