I am relatively new to coin collecting and was hoping for a second opinion on this coin. If anyone had an idea of what this coin is worth it would be greatly appreciated! Attached below is images of the coins.

First off,

I feel as if this coin was struck on a defective planchet and or had lamination issues, so a keeper in my opinion.

Defective planchet caused by a lamination issue.

Agree with the lamination assessment.

IMHO, this is a small slag inclusion, not a lamination.
https://www.error-ref.com/alloy-err...nclusions-3/

"... During smelting, unwanted contaminants float to the top of the molten metal in the form of slag. This slag is supposed to be skimmed off before the alloy is poured into the mold for the ingot. If small pieces of slag remain behind, they can end up in the ingot and persist there through all the subsequent steps of the minting process - rolling, blanking, upsetting, and striking... "

with the slag inclusion
I have a soft spot for pre-decimal errors / varieties. I'm jealous that you have an obverse christmas tree.
Interest in errors has waned over the years, but IMO it's a keeper.

could also be an obverse die crack under FIDEI, and a lump under the G in D : G, but hard to make it out from the pic.

Any idea what an error such as this would be worth?

Judging from recent sales on eBay maybe $5 to $15.
Depends if someone wants it.
