The left half of the obverse side has pushed up metal towards the rim that rises up from the field. Heaviest at around 10 o'clock gradually tapering off in both directions from there.
The reverse side shows no anomolies corresponding to the obverse as far as I can tell. Opinions?

That's called a Ridge Ring caused by Die Deterioration.
No extra value.

@alw, that looks like ridge ring to me--one of the symptoms of a tired die.

That was my suspicion. A worn die increasing metal flow towards the rim. Now I know what it is refferd to. Thanks!
