@lainmejia, it doesn't look like a plating bubble to me, but to eliminate this possibility, can you please confirm that it won't depress with firm pressure from a wooden toothpick? Thx.

@spence...I did the test, but the shape does not change at all...I took new pictures and also I was trying to match the shape with other shapes and letters and I just found 2 possible matches. You can see those matches in the image G.

Definitely a die chip, the area to the right of the T is a common place for them.

If it is a die chip, there should be many of these. So keep an eye out for these when you search that year. Also what is going on, on the field SW of the shield?
