Can you get us a close-up of the ear please? so far it just looks like a circulation hit.
Too bad about that fingerprint on this coin..

This is the best I can do for close ups. Also have you looked at the red brown example of the 1988 fs101? I wouldn't vall it clearly defined but you're probably right as to it being damage. Definitely made me question it lol.

I'm no @john1, but with that really nice close-up you just added to the thread, this definitely looks like a hit to me rather than a doubled ear.

Post mint damage, not an error coin, sorry. Not every coin is an error coin. Not everything you throw at a wall sticks.

Your coin the ear took a hit.

Same mark is seeing on the side burns as well. Just a contact mark. A doubled ear will be from the hub creation process that is made on the die. This is a normal coin with damage. Often we see something like this that is Machine Doubling, the follows the contour of the ear. But only a doubled die is created on a hub "doubled die".
