1983 Lincoln Penny No mint

On the right hand corner below the floating roof and hard roof of the Lincoln memorial has anyone seen a triangle shape that looks like a possible mint error? I have 1983 no mint mark Lincoln penny that has this on it. I am new to collecting and didn't know if this was a known error??

    @Bamaphil Welcome, A no mint mark means the cent was minted in Philadelphia. When you ask for comments on a detail, you'll need to add clear, close up pics of the detail. Have you compared your cent to other 83 cents? Good luck. Peace Roy

    A little fuzzy but okay. Appears to be some die chip debris. Kinda common, IMO. Peace Roy
