Haven't seen this around, don't know if it's an error worthy of attention or not (or if both a's got bumped or something? Still learning so much about every error and date!

Looking at it closer I can see there doesn't look to be any strike marks (Like if it had been pushed into that shape) on the part I'm trying to point to; it's the inner horizontal line on the A's in America, on the top coin.
It makes the inner part of both A's form little tear drop shapes instead of triangles.

There are multiple strike marks on both As, the M as well as the R, and lower, on the columns on the Memorial building.

Not an error, damage. PMD.
