I have a unusually 1968 dime. Can anyone tell me anything about this?

Imho, from your photos. It looks like you have a 1968 dime with a split planchet. That was also struck with a grease filled die that distorted the image. While we are waiting for the experts. Here are a few helpful links.
Strike through grease:
Sorry, but it was subject to high heat after it left the mint. That's what caused the distortion on both sides and is causing the clad to split. If it was a true split planchet, it wouldn't have the distortion. Not a mint error
Those are heat blisters caused by extreme heat after it left the Mint. It is only worth ten cents and is damaged. Not a Mint error by any means.

Sorry, my mistake. Even ,I learn something new every day
At least you're willing to admit your mistakes. That shows your desire to learn. We've all made mistakes here on CT. Yes me too.
Thank you everyone. Back to the drawing board.
