    Unusual bubble on this 2000P dime that I found , it is noticeable on both sides and covers his face completely.
    Has anyone else seen one like this?
    Or does anyone know a value of this coin. This is my 1st coin to check online even though I have been collecting for many years and have many coins . I especially like error coins.
    Thank you,

    Sorry to say it's a damaged dime.

    What you see occurred to the coin
    after it was already in circulation.

    Based upon the pics. I think solder blobs, IMO.

    Thank you Robert, I had looked up such a thing of bubble and believe or not, I found there is a thing called gas bubbles that I thought was strange.

    Thank you Fred, I did find gas bubble when I ran a research but knew it was a rare chance.

    I agree with Fred! In case you didn't already know it, Fred is one of the foremost error dealers in the country. ~ Chris

    This is usually caused by coins being in a fire . The heat builds up between the thin nickel layer and the copper core. this causes the clad layers to separate and the pressure swells the nickel layer outward.
