Please go back and really read your title (you added nothing to the comment section). You haven't asked a question!!

Describe what you are seeing. You must be more specific can each and every time. It gets frustrating trying to guess what the question is.

What did you finally find?
What shape do you see?
Is it recessed or raised off the surface?
Etc.
Etc.

All I see is lots of circulation marks and wear. These marks, whatever they are from, appear to be recessed (incuse) into the surface of the coin. This would indicate circulation damage (PSD/PMD) from the coin being struck by something.
The shape you think you see should match the shape of some item in the striking chamber that has damaged the die. This would produce a raised (in relief) anomaly, like any detail on a coin.

Remember to ask specific questions (in this post, you are just sharing these images with us.)

This is after mint damaged from contact with another object that has pushed the metal away from the area where it was struck. If you look through all the mint error listings on Heritage Coin Auctions then you wont see anything like this.
