The '6' is deformed because it was once crimped in a coin rolling machine. This would be considered damage, which occurred after it left the mint.
The 'D' is filled due to a tiny break in the die where the center of the 'D' partially broke off. It's called a die chip and add no value to the coin as it is very common.

Thanks for sharing your image but with all posts please be a little more specific with the area of the coin you have questions about so we can help with your understanding.
