Welcome.
Can you point out the areas that you are questioning? I see some post strike damage (PSD) but nothing looking like a mint error.

That's ok because we all started sometime.
The damaged rim is just that, damage after the blank planchet was struck by the Obverse and Reverse dies.

Damage after the planchet leaves the coining chamber is not a mint error and is referred to as PSD (Post Strike Damage) or PMD (Post Mint Damage).
Note: Anomalies to the planchet before or during the process of being struck can be a mint error.

Hope this helps some.

Not worth more than face value since it is damage
