That's ok.
But when it is incuse (recessed into the normal coin surface) that is usually an indication of post mint damage.

I suggest reading a book on the the minting varieties and doing research on the minting process. Here's a link to one of the best books on the subject and it is for sell at ebay here The Official Price Guide to Mint Errors


Also look are completed mint error and variety auctions at Heritage Coin Auctions to see what they look like and what is most valuable. Link to HA's error listings is here https://coins.ha.com/c/search-results.z ... Tab-071515
