@Venny17, first welcome to CCF. Second, pics that are more in focus would help. In the meanwhile, between the S and O there seems to be a linear defect. It isn't clear to me if it is a die crack or a linear plating bubble. Could you please try to depress this area with a wooden toothpick? Thx.

I pressed down with a tooth pick and it seemed like it went down barely anything but I think its did but mark is still pretty visible.

Does anyone know if this is of much value currently?

Nope. This doesn't carry any extra value. Your coin is worth face value. This is a very common plating issue on the 1983 Lincoln Memorial Cents, since they were Copper plated Zinc planchets. http://www.error-ref.com/blisteredplating/
