Is this a lamination error and possibly something else?

Hello everyone. I joined to post this http://i.imgur.com/YJKie.jpg. It is a quarter that I recently obtained that caught my eye. I am by no means knowledgeable about errors, but particularly the pattern in the lower part of Washington's hair resembles some other lamination errors I saw online.

The reason I am not sure about what else might be going on here is because there is a noticeable dent in the front of his neck and another one that is less apparent in the picture, toward the back of his neck.

The two holes are the most striking deformation, and they can be seen on the eagle side as well. On the eagle side, the two hole areas look similar in pattern as the lower part of Washington's hair. This is noticeable on the left wing of the eagle and the body.

It is entirely possible that I could be completely wrong about this whole thing, so that is why I have come to people that really know their stuff. Any insight into this is greatly appreciated. Thank you all in advance.

First:you did a very good job with your description.
Second:all I see is damage but the image is a bit small,I could be just missing the lamination.

Well to the CCF forum:

The coin has two indents on the obverse and two bulges on the reverse. Someone altered this coin. Punched it with something. Sometimes even nice coins get ruined by anothers hands.

Some have asked about my images I use and I'm glad to say, I've completed an Educational DVD of these. Become a supporter of this site, send me your address and I will send you a DVD. Many have loved this so far. I just completed version 11. The most updated version yet. So if you haven't got a copy yet, it is a good time to do so. I also have a DVD and one for windows media player. The one for media player is nice for your computer as it is clearer in images. Let me know which you would prefer. If you are a new member and wish the DVD, make your donation and have them pass on to me where you would like this shipped. Most have really appreciated this to increase the coin knowledge. Thanks for your support!

Thank you. I just attempted to scan it at a better quality but it seems that is the best it will do to allow the defects to be seen.

Thanks coop. That did occur to me. The dents are oddly shaped, which makes it more likely that it was damaged. Since I was unable to explain the "bubbling" pattern, I thought I should post it here.
Rest in Peace
