Hey all, found this while roll hunting. It's a 1977 D. The D is just a pile of metal. Looks like a cud from what I have been reading.
Does this kind of goof add any value?

No added value. Not a cud,a cud always includes the rim. Check the glossary left side of page.

Actually that is known as a broken post.
Quit common on P and D mint marks.
It is just part of the minting process.

Thank you.
Is this considered an error?

"Solid" mintmarks are common in most denominations. There are two causes. A minor die break causes the raised part of the mintmark on the die to fall off due to heavy use during the striking process. This die fatigue can obliterate the post creating a solid mintmark. A die chip may also remove the central "post" in the die face, leaving a solid loop in the letter on the coin's surface. It's not a die variety, and isn't worth much usually because it isn't uncommon but might occasionally sell for low amounts. There would be hundreds or thousands of them out there. If the post broke off half way through a run, you would have as many filled in mint marks as you would have regular mint mark. Off the top of my head I believe it was the late 1970s that I remember seeing a ton of them.

Circulation wear can also fill in mint marks.
