On the reverse of at least this coin, the ‘e’ of ‘In God We trust’ is filled; something I have not seen before. If this is common, please note it here, or delete the pictures...My example also has the filled "e".

Finally, there is a small die scratch extending down and to the left from the mid-tip of the middle arrow on this coin also.
