Hey there. I am new to coin collecting and found this coin the other day. Can anyone tell me what kind of error am I looking at please? It appears to have errors on both the obverse and reverse, though the obverse looks to be significantly worse. Is it worth getting graded? Thanks so much!

They look like strike throughs (debris got into the striking chamber)
OR
possibly small die chips (but in unusual places so I don't put much stock into that theory).
Describe it as if there were no picture.

Definitely die chips. These are actually typical locations to see these: face, hair, leaves, and the very top or bottom of the torch.

These newer dimes are riddled with die chips and in these exact same places. Your coin is no exception. These are all die chips and I have seen hundreds of them which tells me they are not struck throughs. Welcome to CCF!

Thanks so much for your responses and the welcome. So do die chips cause indentations in the coin too or are they just raised in appearance?

Well, if they are raised - die chips
If Incused - Strike through.
Your s might have a combination of both. hard to tell given the lighting that was provided to illuminate the coin.

Ok. Thank you. It is pretty difficult to tell on the picture taken by my phone so I took a few pictures of the screen on my coin microscope and though they aren't as clear, it does appear that there are mostly areas of indentation with a few areas that are raised.

Please no screen shots. They are too pixelated to be of help. You definitely have die chips on your dime. As Bumpkin and Tanman mentioned, these are fairly common. And no, not worth having your coin graded.

to the CCF!
ça va bien aller
