Mintmark problem

I was looking through some wheat cents I have and I found something odd about the date on one. I don't know if it's a mint problem or something else.


I apologize that it's at an angle, it seemed normal when I took the picture but here it decided to turn at an angle.

An error of some sort. Looks like a piece of another cent, or this one, broke off and got stuck in the mintmark and the corner of the 2 during striking. CONECA has the listing of all the known varieties/errors.

Looks like it just got pressed a little bit and squished? Not an error expert,  just my guess it's damage and not an error.

I think its a minor error. Looks like the mintmark was filled which is indicative of die wear
