It is a Planchet Error not a Die Error.
A Die Break which is a Die issue would be raised and it would of formed a Cud.
I like it. Thanks for sharing!
To your question, yes.
Just curious, what is the weight?
I would think if a portion of the die fell away the area would be raised, such as a cud. The fact a portion of the coin itself is gone I would think lamination or some other defect in the planchet.
As others have said the device details being visible in the area is normal for a displaced lamination. The fourth image seems to show the layered effect of the lamination. It looks like there were 4 layers involved with this lamination along the edge, where the lamination meets the field. First I've seen where you can determine that there was more than one layer.
