    I’ve seen a few other examples of this were the last “0” in 2000 is faded, but nothing as clear as this one I found. The shape of the damage around the edge makes me think it’s not post-mint damage.
    What do you all think?

    It looks like post-mint damage in this particular instance. You'd be better spending it, and not to mention coins are struck, not printed.

    It looks like damage from a rolling machine to me.

    pretty obvious that the last zero was wiped out by that scrape around the edge most likely caused by a rolling machine as Idhair stated...

    They probably ran out of ink during the printing of your Dime.

    Oh wait.. Someone mentioned that coins are not printed.. My bad. I am wrong :(

    I agree with damage. Not a Mint Error of any kind.

    You coin is not a filled die error. Whatever caused the circular scratches scraped away the digit (as others have said).

    Here is a non sarcastic answer..
    Put enough pressure on one end and the coin will get damaged. Your Dime is Not a mint error.

    First, coins are minted not printed. Stamps and dollar bills are printed. Second, it may have been weak being struck through grease and that's common. Lastly, you can see the circular scar from a coin rolling machine so it's damaged. Welcome to CT.
