Not a Morgan Dollar, which is totally different.
You might want to buy a book called the "Red Book" so you can research different coins and learn more about them. The above site is a good start too.
I took a better pic its very faint its embedded in the coin
I'm not sure what you are referencing.
The top part of the design is worn down making a flat shelf like ridge.
Common heavy circulation Wear with some toning or a stain in the middle of it.
It is just damage.
The so-called "W" you see was not struck onto the coin at the Mint.
Research a bit into how dies are made and then used to mint the coin and you will understand why.
Hope this helps
I think I see what you are talking about
But I think a couple items (a) the "W" ish looking area is part of the design, though worn down flat shelf like. Compare to a prestine walking liberty of that design area and contemplate how it would look worn down. (b) that right area, or left part of the W is actually damage - ie, a coin scraping across that small area (or engraved dots) which is damage anyways.
You have a heavily worn walking liberty half dollar.
I collect walking liberty half dollars, they are very nice. The area in question is VERY COMPLEX.
In that area that you think is a "W" are a lot of design lines that can create a "W" line design especially when worn down.
Even compare that to a 1941 that is more worn down than the above images, but not as much as yours
