It looks more like somebody took a grinder to it. I don't think it is an error. Just somebody bored with power tools.

Yeah, it's not an error or mistrike. Someone used a power tool on this coin, as nolifeking stated, no die would make these marks on a coin.

Yes, a better image, but unfortunately this couldn't happen during the minting process so it's not a mint error.
