@brandon, first welcome to CCF. Second, to me that looks like an encrustation, perhaps from environmental exposure rather than a mint error.

There is also some encrustation on the front at about 9 o'clock that has largely been cut off in the pic. This one is a spender for me.

Looks like some sort of foreign substance adhering to the obverse.

The shiny copper and thickness of the blob is what gets me. Hard to think this is encrustation but you all are the experts! Thanks again!
