Not sure if this is damage or something else? I'm talking about the triangle mark between the A N in Canada, I was going to just pass on it because it looks like it's damage and couldn't find any errors that cause this but figured I'd ask if it's a plating error.
it's incuse in case anyone was wondering.

Ok, looks very smooth and fairly big dent wasn't sure if it's possible for a small piece of plating get pulled off during the striking process. Thanks@ JimmyD

If the plating was pulled off, you would see the layer of copper underneath it.

So it's possible for that to happen? Not on this coin but plating can get pulled off during a strike? What's the error called? Some errors I find out about are ones iv never heard of. I started reading about different errors and how they are caused but there is like 1000 different kinds of errors that can happen. Some aren't rare or considered real errors others don't look like big errors but are rare, errors is a huge thing to learn about. So much literature to go through lol

I have never heard of plating pulling off during a strike.
I just said that if the plating was pulled off, no matter how, there would
be copper showing through. Sorry if you misunderstood me, I should have been more specific I guess.
