Coin and Paper Money Collecting/2005 DIME "CUD" ERROR

I have the exact same irregular piece on a 1999 dime I found at work.  The front of the dime seems to be off center as well, as if it was stamped incorrectly.  I have not been able to locate any information on this dime except for your picture here.  Just wanted to inform you I have the same error on my coin.  Thanks!
