Looks like damage to me, perhaps deliberate. Not so many pics next time, please.

@melissa, first welcome to CCF. Second, it is a little hard to see from your pics whether this triangular section is recessed, proud, or flat with the rest of the fields of the coin. Your last pic is about the best one and in this it looks like this section is level. In that case, that groove, which starts on one rim and then proceeds over various design elements before returning to the rim is most likely damage (not a mint error).

First,

It helps us to see what you are seeing if you could post:
one clear photo of the entire obverse
one clear photo of the entire reverse
a clear closeup of the feature that caught your eye

One easy way to get clear photos is to place the coin on a dark background, stack 2-3 books next to the coin, and sit a cell phone overhanging the books. The camera can be focused so the coin fills the frame. The photo doesn't need to be high resolution to capture the surface.

One thing I noticed with your coin was the "notch" on the rim between the second "S" of STATES and the "O" from OF. This suggests that something damaged the coin, producing the line that you see. The line also forms a fairly sharp "V" on the coin. A die break would be raised on the coin, rather than incuse (recessed), and would be more rounded and ragged. I suspect that your coin was damaged.

Again, welcome! Keep hunting, and keep asking questions!
