A better pic would help to confirm whether it is surface staining or perhaps an abrasion. I suspect that the general shape of this mark might be somewhat S-shaped, but pareidolia is filling in the rest.

My pareidolia sees a "P".

I suspect it is a F. However, no known mints with an F for a name.

Whatever it is, it's PMD.
Didn't happen during the striking of the coin.

Any chance of taking a photo of that area on an angle to see if anything is raised?
