It's a Lamination flaw.

I guess what I am asking is: do these errors make the coins more valuable to collectors? I thought they did as my dad collected so many, but I am scarily new to this.

Some collectors put a premium on this sort of thing, but many view it as a distracting defect.

I see you're from Port Leyden. I spent many a winter weekend on the hill, beautiful country.

To answer your question more directly - this is a mid-VF coin, worth maybe 4-5 bucks in perfect condition. Perhaps lamination collectors would value it higher, but I see it as a defect and would value it at around $2.

Sometimes Lamination errors lower the value of of the coin. So don't always think it is a plus. a strong lamination is worth a lot more. A minor one may just be a deal breaker. When I was selling coins on there, I had one with a lamination issue that got no bids. I still own it.
