    Nada. Try the internet sometime. All sorts of cool error websites that will answer your questions.

    You're seeing either mechanical doubling,
    or what's sometimes called 'split line' doubling,
    where the copper plating has torn away from
    the zinc planchet during the striking process.

    Neither are errors; part of the minting process.

    Not every coin is going to be perfect, when you
    are making billions, and using machinery like
    the Mint uses.
