    What you are seeing is die deterioration.
    Very common on Nickels.

    agree with above - die deterioration from a worn or overused die.

    Very very very common - not an error, I'm sorry to say

    The 99 P if doubled is a form of worthless doubling. Especially if the MM is doubled. The RPM ended in 1989 when the mm was no longer hand punched into the working dies.

    It's a spender or you can keep for education and reference. Minted from a worn die.
