Can't tell anything from that photo.
Anything other than photo of coin is not required.
Please take a larger clear photo of Obverse and Reverse,
preferably flat on a table with plain white or gray background.

It doesn't look like a brockage or strike through. Is the top part of the coin recessed, because it's not linear. Without better photo, I'd say it was a lamination separation from the planchet (part of the coin missing).

Problem is I cant.

I dont have a cell phone or camera (dont even have the internet at home for that matter). And cameras on computers, at least the one I used, seem terrible at taking clear images. I tried to use photoshop to clear it up with no success

I looked up this type of error online and it looks exactly what they call a partial brockage error

(For that matter too, I tried to crop it to get rid of my face in the photo, I didnt want it there it just make the coin image look worse......)
