Most likely, you don't have the proper client environment set up. Please show the select statement, as well as your session and database NLS variables on insert and select, client and server. And exact version and platforms.
What is NLS_LANG set to? See metalink Note:158577.1 .
If you are on unix on the server, you can use the od utility to look at the data directly, among other ways.
