Two Coins

I have two US coins that combine to total 35 cents. One is not a dime. What are the coins?

The trick here is in the wording (ok, so it isn’t really a math teaser…). Only one of the coins is not a dime, not both! One is not a dime, but the other is. 1 dime and 1 quarter, the quarter is not a dime.
