The spot on the obverse in George between the O and R is damage? It looks like the metal has peeled back? Just making sure this is PMD and not a lamination issue or something else. I did the best I could with the pictures. It is a 1942 coin. Thank you.

Difficult with this example to be very sure that it is a small lamination when looking at two dimensional pictures.

I think? it is a small lamination caused by contamination of the metal strip during the rolling process, before the blanks are cut from the strip.
I think? that if it was PMD, then any metal gouged out after impact would have broken away.

To confirm for yourself, look at the subject area at a shallow angle, using a 10x loupe.

I'd call it an inclusion.
Describe it as if there were no picture.

@sel_69l - Thank you for your response. Taking pictures of these things is kind of tough. What you're saying about lamination and damage makes sense to me.

@ kanga - Thank you for your response. I'm still kind of new to this. What do you mean by inclusion?

Hard to say but I'd say a lamination flaw too.
