Is it an indent, can you feel it with your finger? Looks like there might be a pressure ridge so I am leaning toward blunt force.

I am not even certain it's an error. I am leaning toward blunt force damage, but even if it is some die transference or something similar, it is not going to be valuable. Valuable errors are much more dramatic.
