Can't really tell from the photos, higher quality ones may help as well as a pic of the reverse. Three possibilities: 1) Damaged die; 2) metal struck into planchet; 3) An old blob of glue or solder.

Appears to be a lamination peel, not uncommon on Lincoln cents.

Sorry I had to lighten up the pic a bit to see.

IMHO - I don't think it is either - just looks damaged with gunk on top.

It is a lam, definitely not damage. Nice find!

Thanks everyone for the input—will keep since first lamination find—just for grins looking on eBay and prices vary widely—i would think the rarity of the coin and the size of the lamination and grade of coin all factors—do you think soaking in acetone to try and clean it up a bit would hurt?

I believe it's one heck of a lamination error . Impressive .
