Also I see maybe a weak strike of a W next to WE?

The last 1 may have been flattened by a vending or coin wrapping machine.

The circular scratch that runs from Lincoln's vest, through the date makes me think it's damage from a coin wrapping machine or vending machine coin chute, also. It just took metal away from the last 1 in the date as it scarred up the fields on the coin. As noted above, just PMD / PSD.
