Perhaps a soak in pure acetone might remove debris to see if it's still attached afterward.

Post strike debris. Most likely NOT a strike error, if anything a struck-thru debris if firmly attached after acetone 24-hour bath.

Good advice.

Still looks like something on the coin. Even the other thing that looks like a glue/residue from something did not budge. So It may be something that the acetone did not remove. It might take something as strong as lacquer thinner to remove it. But I feel it didn't happen at the mint or during the strike.

I'd just spend and get onto the next coin. There is nothing I know of that would be a mint error to make something like that. It is raised above the surface of the coin, so it happened later on during it life in circulation.
