Besides the obvious, look to the left of the mint mark not sure what that is.

@TS, you want to keep this in a 2x2 in order to prevent that hinged flake of metal from breaking off from the rest of the coin. It is likey worth a premium either way, but better to keep all of the layers attached.

this is a Lamination error, mostly Retained Laminations.

I found this on Error-Ref dealing with the lamination/delamination terminology.

Quote:
The term "lamination error" is grammatically incorrect as the metal is actually delaminating. While "delamination error" would be the proper term, we're stuck with the terminology we've inherited from previous researchers.

It is now a floppy lamination peel, kind of a comb over onto the bust. In BU it would have a lot more value. But still a keeper.
