I'm a noob so please go easy on me. The America on the reverse is all but missing. I was wondering if it is grease,a cud or a dude with a file. On the rim of the coin is a crack where the A would be. Also it appears as if there is some faint lettering beside the other A in America. I would really appreciate your opinions. Sorry the pictures aren't the greatest. Thanks.

Probably just a partially grease-filled die.

Partially Grease Filled Die. Although too minor to have any premium.

Thanks for your quick response and welcome. I was hoping it was something awesome, but still fun to fine errors and imperfections.
