Roosevelt dime error?

I'm with Mike and l.cutler.....definitely just environmental damage.  Your coin was probably buried and then found by someone with a metal detector who dug it up, saw it was just a 1995-P dime and therefore nothing special and spent it.

@Kevine84, gotta agree with all the above.  Your last pic looks like the high spots on the obverse are starting to show through a "silver" color again.  Try carrying it in your pants pocket everyday for a week or two and see if it doesn't turn back into its normal silver tone dime color.  Believe me...... I've posted my fair share here on the forum of what I thought were Improperly Annealed Planchets only to discover they were not.  (P.S.- I'm still gonna find one in the wild one day if it's the last thing I do before I die..... haha).

Save up a roll of them and watch people lose their minds.

And hope to whatever you may believe in that SlickCoins or Ratzie33 (if they're actually different people) isn't the one to find them.....

Slick and ‘33’ are an archetype. There’s lots more of them out there right now watching horrible YouTube videos.

Oh I'm sure of it.  YouTube is to coin information what Etsy is to coin shopping.  I wish there was a way to stop people from posting the sensationalist, dishonest garbage about coins on YouTube that gets posted there but, if there is, I don't know about it.  It's a shame...YouTube has some good stuff but the coin stuff is horrible!!

The 4’s on the Kennedy halves aren’t the ONLY things with teardrops when the SMS pieces come up for discussion.

Sorry Kurt... couldn't resist commenting as I did knowing your stance on '64 SMS's (I'm in the same camp as well)..... NOW.... where are my emergency supply of eye sticking needles????  I will FedEx them to you if you need more.....
