Those marks look like they are incuse in which case they
would be gouges in the coin.
If it was a die break, the marks would be raised.
Change is inevitable except from a vending machine.

Not an error coin. It's a scratch. It's Post Strike Damage (it happened after it left the U.S. Mint). The metal has been pushed over and flattened. Worth face value.
