Hello,
What do you think of this coin ? The mintmark D look weird to me and there is parallel lines on the coin
Are they considered errors ? and if yes will it make the coin valuable ?

The post on the die that was used to strike the central part of the mintmark on this coin may have been slightly chipped. The result is that the letter D is partly filled in.
