I found my 1999 P Roosevelt dime that is missing clad layers on both the obverse and reverse while coin roll hunting wheat pennies.I am new to coin collecting and at first I thought the dime was rusted or dirty from oil or something but after researching I realized it was a missing clads error. I was very happy. I very much enjoy this new hobby and my collection is growing quiet fast. Thanks for allowing me to share and good luck on your hunts my fellow coin collectors.

It looks to me like your dime has environmental discoloration. Were it missing clad, weight would be less than normal. Dime weight missing one clad layer = 1.863 g +/- 0.091 g; missing two clad layers = 1.453 g +/- .161 g. A normal-weight missing clad error is possible, but extremely rare and is not the case with your coin.

Wow! If that's a missing clad layers dime (message right above mine) then I may have found a few while coin roll hunting myself! Luckily I haven't spent them yet, so I may be able to see it soon. I mostly thought it was dirty, altered, or a dug find. I hope at least one is the real deal. I don't have any sort of grams scale, so that's something I probably need to get.

This is usually the color of a missing clad

I lean toward environmental toning.

@rand, first welcome to CCF. Second, I agree that this dime most likely has environmental toning. As @pete mentions, the best way to confirm is to weigh this piece.

Environmental tarnishing/staining/toning (you pick). Post mint damage ( PMD), no mint error here.

I appreciate everyone's input and advice. I always enjoy learning and being corrected. A set of scales is now on my to get list.

Holding a coin in a pair of steel pliers is about 10,000 times worse than holding it in your hand. Just hold it by the rim with washed hands. Looks like a regular environmentally damaged dime in this case though, so no harm done.
My best finds:
1996 DDO-001/FS-101: http://goccf.com/t/372066
Two 2000 WAMs in a box: http://goccf.com/t/375240
1995 DDO-001/FS-101: http://goccf.com/t/376071#3225244

Looks like 90% of the clad coins I find metal detecting after I put them in a tumbler to clean them then back in circulation they go.

Looks like a metal detector find to me.

Even if your not sure of what you have, keep them pliers away from your coins. Looking at the pics, all I pay attention to are the pliers.
