Not a lamination error.
Those are called Die Chips.

Sometimes informally referred to as the "eyes" variety, as it looks like the circles in the sixes have eyeballs peering glancing sideways...

This is also what some refer to as the Eyes "variety", I personally don't consider die chips as a variety since they usually occur during the overall life of the die usually accompanied by deterioration.

A lot of the dies used for 1966 nickels ended up looking like this, even a few doubled die reverse examples also show these exact die chips.
