I am still learning. Is the lack of a rim on this 1954-D penny a mint error or damage? I put it next to another penny for comparison. Any is help appreciated.

I looks like damage to me. It may have been in a bezel of some sort.

A bezel is a piece that surrounds the coin (think of a washer for a bolt) and it's usually made of metal. The coin is dropped in to a hole in the bezel then "Pressed" to lock it in place. This can damage the coin's rims, flatten them out and sometimes leaves partial lettering. These are used for advertising or souvenirs sometimes called "Lucky Coins."

Your coin looks like it was in a bezel at one time and has fallen out or been removed.

Might be an encased cent, or just a damage cent:

On the encased cents show more of a flattening on the rim, making it lower than the normal coin and even affects the fields.
