This could have ben made when the die stamping out the coin had grease in some of the details due to polishing of the die. This happens often and therefore adds no value.

I secondly agree : Grease filled die :
Filled die or grease filled die errors are actually very common and occur more frequently than you might expect. These errors occur when part of a coin’s design is obscured by grease or other foreign matter on the die’s surface. The rest of the coin strikes up, but a selected section does not.
