Guys this coin has craters and also areas that look to have flakes possibly from the craters, can you tell what has taken place on this coin? Thanks.

Interesting! The alloy used wasn't mixed properly so the surface has areas that have lifted and separated on the coin. As Coinfrog noted, these are called laminations.

Drop it in a 2X2 and add it to your collection!

Nice find, you don't usually see multiple lams on one side.

Would that be a lamination or a de-lamination?

It is possible to have a stuck through on a coin with laminations.
It looks to have some retained laminations in your last two images.
The weight would be nice to know to possibly rule out the indentations being struck through.

I find a lot of these in early 60s bags. As Yoko stated above, improper mix. I call it slag. During the mixing process some areas of copper cool down faster than the rest and don't mix together with the rest of the copper. I've found a few that all of the obverse or reverse is slag.
