Hello I got this 5 cent what kind of error is this? Missing nose bridge and how much is it plus it's in good condition. I add more pictures I found. See that line marking in 1 and between the leaves a curve line.

It’s due to overpolishing of the die. You can see on the forehead where it is also weak.
Not really considered an error but more of an acceptable part of the minting process
as it was Intentionally done. Doesn’t really add too much extra value unless you can
someone who collects that sort of thing.
