    The smaller scratch is hard to see.

    It's very difficult to make anything out on your pics. However, the line on the face is likely to be a scratch, and scratch = damage, and damage reduces any collector value. Once again, it's hard to tell from the pics but the coin looks like it has environmental damage as well. Pretty ratty looking

    The pictures are too blurry to accurately determine what you have. However, scratches = Post Mint Damage (PMD) and warrant no numismatic premium. Cheers, RickO

    Those pictures would need to be much better in order for anyone to be helpful, the above advice is accurate in regards to scratches though.

    Scratches are damage. That coin is corroded making it more likely that it is scratched and damaged.

    Better photos would help.

    The one long whitish line in the center of the coin is not an error of any type – it’s some type of scratch or surface disruption that occurred while after the coin left the US mint

    I've seen better pictures of the Loch Ness Monster.
