i have studied (& own a few) of the "ROCKWELL"1, or 'dot coins' as they call them,.....

:eureka:
of course it is difficult / near impossible to "properly attribute" a 'dot coin' from an on-line image,....
from your image here, your coin DOES NOT show the 'characteristics' needed to qualify as a "dot coin" ... JMO

I agree, this is a mark or something impurity on the coin that has toned or someone removed.
