That is a Die chip in the 9. No real premium over face value but a lot of fun to find
Definition- quoted from cuds on coins
"Die Chips. Definition: A small piece (less than 4 square millimeters) that falls out of the die face and has no direct connection to the design rim. The missing piece leaves a void in the die face into which coin metal flows."

Edit: to add definition.

@CollectorSC18, first welcome to CCF. With this type of die damage, the post in the center of the number 9 broke off, allowing the metal to flow in and fill up what should be an empty space. No extra numismatic value, but a very nice example--and the price was right.

Thank you for the quick response and for the welcome. I'm starting in coin roll hunting this was my first after three weeks of searching. Any advice you can give on the subject is appreciated. Are there collectors that collect these.
Rest in Peace

Yes. A lot of us keep what we find if it's interesting enough.

Check out http://cuds-on-coins.com/.

If it's the first one you found, you might want to keep it for that reason alone!

Hey, just a slight clarification (compliments of a friendly PM from @coop). Since the number 9 is open, there actually isn't a "post" on the die. Best to call it a die chip just like @toot said originally.

Your example is a nice one, but I'm doubtful that there is much numismatic value from the die chip.
