@gd, first welcome to CCF. Second, it looks like you were trying to upload a pic of your coin, but it didn't quite work. Here is a link to the tutorial. I look forward to seeing what you have!

Ok super--that worked and your picture is now up. That helps a ton. It looks to me like the letter W took a hit (or multiple hits) which have moved around some of the metal into a mostly 8-shaped design. Sorry but this isn't a mint error.

Agree, it is just damage.
What you are saying is impossible to happen during the striking
of the coin. Numbers and letters do not just suddenly appear.

It looks like contact marks on the W of WE. The overall condition of the coin make me think it's a "cup holder" coin or it may have been buried for a time. That's why the surfaces look so rough.

The two contact marks left bomb craters with the metal pushing away from the ground zero zone. Just well placed damage on those areas.

While I'd love to see a clear photo of this coin, from what I see I have to agree... PMD.
