Received this coin today at a local McD's. What is that protruding from the chin? Thoughts?

    I am going out on a limb here, but it looks like a gouge (PMD) that happened early in the coin's life and has progressed along with the coin's wear.
    Will wait anxiously for other post responses.

    Come on Wayne you can see it, It’s right there on his chin. I have one Acne Indian with Appaloosa Buffalo.




    Hoard the keys.

    I would say it looks like a die chip and has worn with the rest of the image/coin. Cheers, RickO

    I'll go with a hit in circulation with metal movement (PMD). His nose look like it got hit also.

    I'm with the others, I believe that the coin got hit which moved metal to create what you see.

    The more qualities observed in a coin, the more desirable that coin becomes!
