I believe thats what they call a cud error. It's caused by a missing piece of the die I think. I don't think it adds lot of value to the coin.

usandthem has it right,Looks like a cud, On the reverse side of the cud some of the design or devices should be missing .Would sell on eBay between $10 and $20.I sold a 1977 Lincoln on eBay awhile back for $36.00 but the condition was a little nicer with a larger cud

Yeah ~ this is a known cud ~ Listed in Sam Thurmans 1997 edition of THE CUD BOOK ~ listed as LC-78D-7B (see picture). There's a known earlier die state of this one where the cud is a little bit smaller. Yours is the later die state. NICE FIND!!
Got dog tags? I'm looking for old dog tax tags and dog license tags! From any city, any county, and any state (prefer pre-1970) ~ firstname.lastname@example.org
