What a Shot Dime Looks Like

Setting: World War II

Does anybody have any pictures or descriptions of what a U.S. dime (10 cent coin, smallest US coin by diameter) look like after being hit by a rifle round, say from an M1903 Springfield? I've seen some images of dimes hit by air rifles and BB guns and smaller-caliber weapons, but haven't quite seen examples of the kind of damage a rifle round would do to a small coin. I'm hoping for something short of obliteration, something like "it was folded in half" or "half of it was gone, the rest twisted and warped", or something along those lines.
