I'm new at this but I pay special attention to any money I get now whether it be coins or bills. I came across this time and was wondering if it is an error coin or if it was damaged after mint

It is a damaged coin. The damage could have been caused by a number of things outside of mint, but one thing for certain is that it was not minted that way.

On a normal strike coin, the first thing you note is the rim. On your coin the rim is damaged. It is not circular anymore. Incuse marks on a coin are 99% of the time damage from coin contact. 1% of the time is a a mint error. Note the rim distortion. On a normal coin the width is pretty much the same all around the edge of the coin. On your coin you can also see this distorted. How much damage is needed to remove a coin from collectable value. One hit. Then it is done to a serious collector. It the coin was a valuable variety coin, en then damage can remove 90% of the premium value for a coin. So ask yourself when you see an questionable coin; "Would I buy this coin?" is the answer is not, it is spendable. Put it back to work.
