I came across this $1 in my change. To my untrained eye, I don't think it is post mint damage, but I would appreciate input from people with more experience. I hope the pictures are adequate, they are the best I could take with my own equipment.

Any feedback is appreciated,

Thank you.

It is not an error. There is no way this could happen during the striking of the coin.
Your coin is suffering from PMD (Post Minting Damage)
Either intentionally or unintentionally, the surface has been worn down.

Hi mercurial and to the forum!
Definitely PMD (post mint damage) ... someone has used an abrasive on the reverse.

Better pics are needed
A man who tells lies merely hides the truth. But a man who tells half-lies has forgotten where he put it.

A bit hard to tell from the pictures but probably someone abrading the reverse.
