This is damage and not a mint error, someone used a vice and another coin to create this. So it's worth face value.

Welcome. I agree with Daniel.
Notice how the letters of the secondary impression are reversed or backwards? This is what happens when a second coin is placed against this one. The pressure from the vise forces the design into your coin.
There is another coin out there with an impression on it of your coin!
If it had been struck a second time by the die, the letters would in the correct direction and not reversed (as well as other tell tale signs).
Thanks for posting.
