Can anyone help me with this? Did someone do this or is it a mint error? Can you even tell?

@dd, first welcome to CCF. Based on the pics that you have supplied, it looks to me like your dime is now cup-shaped. The roughly circular pattern of damage on the obv seems to coincide with the cupping on the rev. This looks like damage to me.

Spendable. The incuse marks on this coin turns it into a cull coin. Possible dryer coin.

clearer pictures of the entire coin front and back to be sure but looks like it was intentional damage after minting that ive seen so far based on these pictures. But to be fair they are blurry, fuzzy and too close to really be able to tell what's going on here.

Ya this camera sucks but it's all I have right now I have right now I accidentally ran my phone the the other day and crushed it. I've had this time for years I never could figure out how it got bent like that. One side looks like it was beat, forced over or into something. The other side there's nothing really wrong with it other than being bent. To me if it was bent the opposite direction it would make more sense and would have been long forgotten. Thanks everyone for your input

The fourth picture is the key to understanding what happened to this coin. The coin is obviously cupped or dish shaped. The coin shows a full reeded edge you the edge is not perpendicular to the obv/rev faces. So the cupping of the coin HAD to occur AFTER the coin was struck. Something has hit or pressed this coin into the cupped shape AFTER the coins was struck. It is Post Strike Damage.
