Not an error or a die chip. It is PMD caused by a hit.

If it was a misplaced MM, it would be raised, not incuse.

Thanks Greenstang, I figured it would have to be raised. But wasn't sure.

No problem asking if your not sure. You have learned something so you won't have to ask next time this comes up.

Where would such a mint mark even come from, given that NO 1966 dimes had any mintmarks at all?

That's true, but I still scan the 65s 66s and 67s for any mintmarks. Hey, you never know lol. Anything is possible. It takes me along time to scan through 25 dollars of coins. Pretty much looking for  anything and everything. 😁🧐

No. I disagree here. It is this kind of "magical thinking" that leads many collectors astray into Fantasyland. There's one in Anaheim, another near Orlando, but that's about it in this country.
