Don't see an error. Slightly discolored due to unknown environmental exposure.

Please be specific with your question so we won't have to guess what it is you are looking for/at/need to know.As mentioned please tell us "what are you referring to as error?"therefor we can help you better.
Your coin has an environmental damage,looks like a metal detector find.

If you can imagine a way to discolor a coin to produce what you see, then that's likely what happened after it left the mint.

As above, not an error. Coin has been subjected to environmental agents which have reacted with the coin's surfaces over time. Circulation tends to keep the coin's high points more 'clear' of the discoloration.
