It also seems to have a line about where the ear is.

Big old fat die chip in that R, I would say.

@KG, yes a small chip off of the die when this coin was struck, but when it occurs on a letter or number with an enclosed portion (such as this letter R), then we call it a "broken post".

So it is a broken post issue. But you may wonder if it is a broken post, why does it extend above the devices? It is because not only the post has broken off the coin, but part of the die that was holding the post in place. This deep void is filled in with metal from the planchet. Not the coin has a raised area because of the void on the die, from the missing material of the die.
