1963 Lincoln penny error

Hi guys, well here another one for you guys to see and give me some info, when comparing with other 63 Lincoln penny the one i have on the word TRUST, the letter R, has a unique finish. It has a longer and bold/full finish.
Let me know what you think.

    There's nothing wrong with the coin.

    That letter might be a bit flattened because
    it was 'hit'/had contact with something.

    Circulation does unusual (and not so unusual)
    things to coins.

    Also, as you go looking thru coins, realize that just because
    a coin looks a bit 'different' doesn't mean it's an
    error or variety -

    Just more post-mint damage.
