Little anomalies like these are caused by being struck through grease filled die or partially removed design elements caused by a mint employee removing clash marks on the die. They are very common and don't add anything to a coin.

Even they may not hold much commercial value, it is one you noticed and found. So congratulations on your find and keep up the hunt.

I've done the same thing over the past 6 years since I returned to collecting Lincoln's. I usually set ones aside I find interesting for reference until I start to find a bunch and realize whether they are common or not.

Collectors interests are so varied and change over time. We tend to find things interesting that we can afford to look at! gotcoins:
