Greetings all. Was going through a pile of mint Cello 1998-P dimes I have, and stumbled upon this very interesting specimen. Just jumped out a me. Looks like someone slapped FDR upside the head with a barbeque grill shelf. Anyway....what is the reason for this interesting look? Here he is (it's late...rushed pictures, but adequate):

My first thought is sealing machine damage.

Hey John1....interesting. So looking at the Cello serrations, they would match the imprint on the coin is what I think you are saying. Then they must have destroyed the original cello, because the one its sealed in is perfect. No indication of damage. Then again, I don't know how the seal these. I assume they get thrown in bins coming out of pressing. Then a human grabs it up, and brings to a sealing machine? And that's where they balled it up? Makes sense. Surprised they did not realize they sandwiched this coin, damaged, and did not discard. Meh. Who knows. But good eye/call if true.

it does look like the sealing machine caused the damage. If I had the coin I'd leave it in the cello and keep it as-is. I don't see it having any extra value out of the package and maybe a limited premium in.

Yep, definitely damage. Cool damage though. I have an example on a penny myself. Thought it was an error at first too.
