I found this 68 D and it has a weird crater by the date and it was stuck that way? Does anybody know what this is called?

It looks like a small struck through error.

I've never seen a grease strike through this deep and concentrated in one spot could grease really make this deep of a void? I was thinking a small object or piece of debris

With the Damage to the 6 & 9 looks like PSD/PMD. Could you please post some clear pic. of BOTH sides of the coin. With a hit that deep it will show on the reverse, IF not it might be a Struck Through.

That's not a "hit." The coin was struck through something, probably grease.

Yes it was struck through something, but probably not grease.

Agree this is a strike-through.

Could it not also be a delamination.

I don't think it's a lamination, but I've been wrong before. I just don't see anything in the underlying metal that suggest it's a planchet problem.

It may have been struck through debris and it fell off the coin. If that is the case, the weight is probably normal. 3.11 grams. (something was in the chamber before the strike. Got struck onto the coin, and later fell off)

If it were a lamination, (which usually runs in a straight line) and was struck, then later fell off the coin, then the weight would be less than normal because part of the coin peeled off from the original weight. (which small ones might not show as a big loss of weight) But on keeper on lamination errors, the more loss the more valuable it is to an error collector.
