Crop you images and then we can take a look. They will look a lot closer without the wasted space around the coin.

Wrapping/counting/vending machine damage.
Please crop/rotate pics before posting.

@pro, that new pic is much better, although there is still plenty more space that could be cropped out. If you are asking about the smeared letters in TRUST, then that is damage not a mint error.

Just PMD from a coin wrapping machine that has pushed the 1 over.
See these quite often on the forum.
In the future, please crop photos to the edge of the coin and
be specific in your question. This helps us help you.

Photos--for me--are too small to detect anything, aside from some circulations hits of mixed type. What does the reverse look like?

Try cropping the image right to the edge of your coin. that will help to fill the picture with your coin and not the background.
Anyway, it looks like the 1 in the date just took a good hit, moving the metal over a bit.
