Vertical portion of the E in ET is missing. Die error? Any knowledgable input on this coin will be appreciated. Thanks.

Top 2 pics are zoomed in and screenshot. I'm also looking to have a grade estimate by anyone fairly good at it and am wondering how much an error like such would affect a coins price? Thanks.

There's a dark area through what would be the upper vertical section. Is there any evidence of something external knocking it off?

I'll hafta look at it under microscope. Magnifying glass I have isnt good enough. Thanks.

Looks like damage to me.
Can't see how this could have happened during
the striking of the coin.

I would grade it at VG8
