At first I though doubled die, but it is ridged and does no look like one at all IMO, thought damage but it seprates from the wing at the top of where you can see it, if the wing it self took a hit then the metal would be pushed in the opposite direction and there is no sign of a hit next to the the wing either. Possibly a long die chip?

Looks like Machine Doubling. Note how it follows the exact curve of the wing and pushes the metal aside. On the 'WE' on the obverse you can see Machine Doubling there also. (even from a full coin shot I can see it) So post strike damage on those areas.

@coop,if the wing took a hit would the metal not be pushed away from the wing? And I cannot see a hit on the side of the wing where the metal is.

It is pushed towards the wing. Thus the wave of metal moving over the wing. If we had a view on the tops of the devices, you should see that move there as well if it is Machine Doubling? (UN on United devices) If not, then it could be a die crack enlarging as the die is continued to be used. In fact looking at the bottom of the 'I' it does appear to be a light crack on that area. Either way it is not a premium for the coin. Either a striking event, or a die event.

Thanks coop, not that you mention it, it does have the look of a due crack. I have a 2021 Canadian loonie with a nice die crack(no premium) bull I'll post it just because die cracks are more of a rare die event for me to see on Canadian coins. Though I don't look through many loonies so it could be more common on them,I also imagine they are really working the 2022 dies to make up for the low mintage sdue to covid.

Definitely a die crack imo. Relatively common spot for cracks on the eagle reverse.
