Errors like board breaks are covered in the book United States Paper Money Errors: A Comprehensive Catalog and Price Guide 4th Edition. A new version is due next year (2024) so it may be hard to find the print at reasonable cost until then compared to its release price, but an ebook is available also for low cost here if you are unable to:https://www.coin-currency.com/page253.html
or kindle on Amazon
I believe Steve is correct in that it does appear most like a board break than other types of listed errors without getting the input from great collections, PMG or other graders. The board break like many errors can be minor, moderate or major and this determines its ultimate value along with the grade. Minor errors like yours are hard to give exact values or whether its worth the grading costs (value wise). As a $100 note it can also make some people a bit more leery of holding onto them compared to say a $1 note when its unsure if it holds additional value or not. Further its harder to get some collectors who are on the edge (deciding) to buy with selling a $100 error vs a $1, people spend $20 on impulse much more than $120.
Typically in those cases of lower value if I really wanted to know, I would personally first use something like ebay's terapeak or worthpoint (searching board break) to see what similar ones sell for and determine from there. When more rare I might use heritage auctions, great collections and the other numerous auction site histories as needed. I could also list on ebay with a higher set price and use 'make offer' to allow buyers to send offers to gauge a value.https://currency.ha.com/itm/error-n...2161-96131.shttps://www.worthpoint.com/worthope...e-1930256555
