Whatever it is, it's damage as that would not occur during the striking of the coin.

I wonder if the discoloration isn't from brazing flux. Looks like part of the obv has been melted.

Nothing in the minting process could do this. It is post mint damage.

Agree with the above. Wonder if the reverse is showing a h1nt of woody--perhaps not. would need to see the coin in-hand.

With that much PMD on the coin,it would have little to no premium even if it was an error or variety...IMHO.

I agree with John. Whatever it is, it's been destroyed by damage and has lost any value.
