Looks to be die wear to me.

Either that, or partially filled die, and as such, more of an "error" (abeit a minor one) rather than a "variety"

Hi

 

New to forum..but my favorite coins are Cdn. Large cents.

 

This is a Zoell variety, a little uncommon but not overly valuable. It is known as Zoell 1881H S4o - open O only.

 

There is no Griffin number for this variety.
