I know nothing about coins but I love to look at them. I came across this 2019 dime with parts of the torch handle smoothed flat along with the flames and leaves on both sides. I dismissed regular circulation wear and tear due to the front of the coin being so detailed and in excellent condition. could this be an error? I am very curious...thanks in advance if anyone has anything to add

. I do not see this as a mint error. Some kind of damage from being circulated.

Definitely not an error.
That area has been flattened after the coin was struck making it damage.

If this were a Struck Through Grease error, the highest devices would not all be affected equally. If it were a damaged coin, I would expect to see all the highest devices affected. That is how I came to my conclusion on this coin.
