Is this a lamination error? Thoughts?

I bought a lot of 1930-39 pennies and this one was in the mix. I’m having trouble because I’m a newbie deciding if this is a lamination error or just environmental damage. I’ve done some research but have yet to find anything helpful. Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you!

    Generally, a lamination error that has detached will be a void in the coin's surface (unless it has peeled back, in which case part of it will be above the surface).

    Your cent clearly has dried goo of some kind above the surface of the coin. But there are lots of laminations on cents and nickels from that general era so keep looking.
