Perusing through rolls of Jeffersons and I came across this oddity. It is a 1986 D which is, other than laminate, in very good condition. Nice solid strike with a step or two visible. I am but a novice at the Coin World so bear with me.

that was my initial thought. if you look at the reverse the discolored area drops below the finished surface on the rest of the reverse giving monticello a 3d look. Also, upon weighing the coin along with 11 additional 86 d nickels as a baseline and came up with average weight of 5.04 to 5.06 grams. The coin in question weighs 5.02 grams. of the 11 other nickels 5.04 grams was lightest.

It may have had a piece of scrap material in the chamber when you coin was struck. You can see how it wraps around both edges of the coin.

if scrap metal was chambered at strike time would you be able to catch your finger on the edges? In the third pic I posted above the E PL in upper left corner you can see a jagged edge. If you pull your finger from the inside of the coin outwards, it will snag. What would help me determine if it is lamination or debris in chamber. Lastly, if it is debris then what type of error, if any, would it be classified as.
