It appears to be the result of a planchet lamination, with the surface partially peeling at upper left. A photo of the reverse might provide some clue to the striking weakness at upper right.

Thanks you for your help. I also added photos of the back.

It looks like the defects in the planchet extended beyond the lamination, because the weakness of the obverse is directly opposite the same weak portion on the reverse.

So, is that just a poor condition due to a weak strike, or a mint error?  Seems like just a weak strike coin.
