New Coin Enthusiast here, first time Poster as well. Came across this intriguing coin Searching for my First Error Coin... (I swear Every Coin is a 'Double Die':-P.... What are the Options out there?
Odds are it's just Damage from a coin roller maybe? But that "hole" certainly looks like another D or Two, and the abrasion aligns with the placement of the MM. And that Secondary little "pool" of material to the North East of the D Mint Mark seems smooth rather then exposed metal shavings from a damaging incident.
And the Mint Mark itself curiously looks like D on top of D?
Thoughts? Opinions? Am I being waaaay too hopefull here or did I find myself my First Great Find?

That year had the broken punch issue on the SW edge of the mintmark. Thus what looks like a split serif. But these are common. Then center of the mintmark is showing a broken post on the die. When the post breaks off the die, it leave a void. The void is filled in with metal leaving the area that could be an open spot on the coin, is now filled because of the die failure of the post broken off. Sometimes the post brakes off below the field level. The the center of the mintmark that should be a void, is not showing metal above the device.

Thus it appears above the devices. These are caused by the missing post. It can break off in stages, or all at once:

Not premium for this, the value is that now you know what causes this. That is the premium you take away. Past it on to me ones you can now teach:
