Or just human caused damage? The last 2 year-numbers in the date seem odd-placed also.....

When posting photos of a coin you want someone to look at, you should post a photo of the full Obverse and Reverse. Try to take these photos as clear as possible. It would help if you could crop these photos. Next, take photos of the area in question again as clear as possible. If possible, it would be helpful if you could find a way to point to, or some other way to let them know where you are questing. As for photo editing programs, if you do not have one there are three free programs you can get. They are PhotoScape, Inkscape and Gimp. Of all of them PhotoScape is by far the easiest.
