Possible 1965 error, what do you think

I was looking at my pocket change and this just stood out for some reason. Do you see what I saw? Focus on the date

Ok, thanks for taking a look at it. I just can't get a good image of what can be seen by the naked eye better. It just looked suspiciously like a 4 between the 6 and 5. I kinda got it to show a lil better when changing the color.

What you are seeing is a result of circulation damage called a contact mark.

You don't want to focus on a coin, your eyes will start to see shapes that don't mean anything. Just circulation marks and toning.
