I found this dime, cant quite make out the date to me it appears to be 1985. I was hoping I could get input from anyone on their opinion of what they see... I hope the pictures are clear enough for everyone. I'm not sure if this is or isn't an error, if so what type of error? etc. Also I've attached a picture of a Lincoln cent 1983D that appears to have a line going from the top backside of Lincolns head down to his throat area and a "mass" to the upper left of the date. The mint stamp appears to be doubled to me as well. Any opinion on this coin as well? Thanks so much !!

The dime looks like it's been dipped in acid, the cent has a linear plating bubble, it's relatively common on zincolns

Your Dime just shows Post Strike Damage (it happened after it left the U.S. Mint). It was dipped in acid, causing the metal to get thinner in width. The Lincoln Memorial cent has a Linear Plating Bubble. http://www.error-ref.com/blisteredplating/
Errors and Varietys.

I agree with the above and would add that the "mass" is dried glue. Both coins are spendable.

And the mintmark on the cent is showing split plating doubling where the copper plating split at the edge of the D during the strike and got stretched away exposing the zinc.
