I doubt they would strike one coin, then change the die because of a chip. So in my opinion, if it is a legitimate mint error, there should be several examples in circulation.
I'm not even sure how they would fix a mark like that in the die. trying to polish it out would leave massive artifacts.
Do they ever repair a spot like that with weld of some form and then polish out the spot. If so they must have struck many before pulling the die.

I'm pretty certain it's a die chip. For those who don't know, the die chips and breaks are only called cud's if they are attached to the rim of the coin. At least that is what I've seen while learning. It's a good find.
