Hello all, another one that I thought might be a Tiny Circle Die error. What are your thoughts? Thank you for the help,
Edward M.

Could be die damage, but I don't think so, because it is indented into the coin, not raised above the field surface.
Light reflection of the top of the crossbar of the 'T' and the lower part of the circumference of the indent suggest this.

Instructive pictures.

That it may be an error or PMD, is a moot point. I have seen confirmed error proofs before.

I suspect post strike accidental damage at the Mint (no way of really knowing), but there is also the possibility that it may have happened outside the Mint.

As with the Ike dollar, this is a solid disc and not a ring. So it can't be a die ring. It could be some surface contaminant, a struck-through error, or a stain. It would be helpful to know if it's raised, incuse, or flush with the field.

Hello Mike, in had they look as if a different type of Metal is in it. Then I was thinking a a trapped gas bubble that popped but that as far as I can tell does not exist.

Sorry. It does look incused, but at the same time flush with the field. Thought it was a plug at first.
