Came across this 89 p dime with looks like a extra stamp or something on the for head and some lettering issues any input would be appreciated. Thanks for the time.

@djr, first welcome to CCF. Second, some of the letters in the inscription on this coin have been damaged, for example the L in LIBERTY. I'm not as sure about the interesting region by the forehead. Any chance of you taking a posting a close-up of just this region?

Maybe coincidental damage?

Perhaps E&V, but the region looks to be in relief (i.e. raised). Without a corresponding incuse area (or a hit on the rev) to provide this extra metal, I don't see how it could be damage. Now, it could be a bit of grey adhesive or lead solder or whatever that has simply stuck to the surface of the coin, but the OP's most recent pic really makes it look like it is part of the metal from the coin.

Perhaps an oddly shaped and unusually-placed die chip?

Looks like a die chip to me. Doubtful it's post minting damage due to its shape and the fact that it's raised.

Maybe, but we won't know for sure exactly, but it is plausible.

Sure that is attached to the coin. It looks like a piece of the 'T' is missing? (Left crossbar)

Is there just one coin posted or are there two different coins?

No thoughts on a clash? Can someone do a overlay?

IIRC, the right stem would be entirely within Roosevelt's forehead on a clash. This looks like a die chip or a gouge inflicted while cleaning grease out of the die.

@coop, I stand corrected. Based on the overlay you posted, the truncated part of the right stem does extend slightly beyond the forehead.

After looking at the overlay, I think I can see a weak outline of the truncated branch in the first photo. The two diagonal marks on this coin sure don't match any of the reverse design, though. Interesting.
