You're imagination is starting to get ahead of you. By now, you should have a basic knowledge of the minting and die making process if you studied the links members have been posting for you. Think this through. How could your coin be struck over a dime and still be on a cent planchet. Easy answer = It Can't. A cent planchet is too big to fit into the striking chamber for dimes.
The odds of finding an extremely rare error in change is probably higher than winning the lottery. No amount of wishing and hoping is going to change reality. There are only a limited number of ways a mint error can occur, but countless ways for a coin to get damaged after it leaves the mint. That's why you need to keep studying the minting process. Instead of thinking "I see a torch and bands", you need to be thinking "how could the torch from a dime get on a cent planchet, then be overstruck as a cent".
To paraphrase the 14th Century Franciscan Friar and philosopher, William of Ockham, the simplest explanation is usually the correct explanation.
