It appears the I and L have been inscribed on your coin. If so, that would be something that happened after the coin was minted, and would not be a mint error. I'm unable to tell from the picture if the line is raised on your coin or recessed. If it's recessed, it's also post mint damage. If it's raised, without a close-up picture I'd say it's probably the result of a crack in the die that struck it. That would be a Die Crack mint error.
