Dimes are Cupro-Nickel Clad over a center of Copper. The Clad is 75% Copper and 25% Nickel. It will turn a darker tone when affected.
Not a Mint Error of any kind.
Yes, maybe. I understand how that might be, but if you look closer towards the bigger spot that covers most of the obverse, you can see that it looks as if it were something I can most resemble to glittery copper. I apologize, for I am using a cheap cellphone camera. Allow me to capture a better picture.
Good luck finding your answer..

Thank you, sir. I appreciate your time.
Peeling clad? Does that occur after or before circulation?
Thank you, for all of your help.
I know this is a different dime, but do you think this might be an error?
I think you'll find that if you place the coin on a flat surface and use both hands to hold the camera, your photos will be much clearer. Don't worry! The coin won't run away if you put it down. ~ Chris
You should always post FULL IMAGE photos (after you upload your photo, two buttons appear: Thumbnail and Full Image, click Full Image and your photo appears full size on your post and is easily enlarged by clicking on it. Always show both the obverse and reverse, even if your question is just about one side. Members can often give more valuable information having both sides to evaluate. Crop out superfluous background so just the coin shows, and post photos with correct orientation so members don't have to turn their computer in some awkward fashion to view it properly. Add close ups of areas you have questions about and make your questions as definitive as possible so we know what you are asking for. And try to have the best lighting possible to show the most favorable photo of the coin. Hope this helps in the future. Good luck.
