1996 P 10c - Die Chip Error? - "The Facehugger"

I'm new to collecting and have started with Roosevelt Dimes, I believe I have my first error coin. I think this is a Die Chip error. Both the front and back have abnormalities. can someone confirm that this is a Die Chip error, or is it called something else?
Thanks for your help ahead of time.

    Welcome to the forum! :)

    That is heat damage. Not an error of any kind, sorry. :/

    Welcome to the Forum

    It is what is known as a campfire coin. Just damage caused by heat expanding
    air trapped between the layers of the coin.

    Appropriate name for the coin. From the movie Alien.
