Is this an example of a Retained Lamination?

    Looks like glue to me.

    The images seem to indicate a blob of adhesive. A good soak in 100% acetone and see if it starts to loosen.

    Sorry for the picture issue, But it is not a blob.... It is dug into the coin, not sitting on top...

    If it is into the coins surface then it would more likely be a detached lamination or a strike through.

    Paddy54 Hey brother can you spare a half dime?

    Retained lamination is where the medal flake is still attached at the area the lamination is.
    Most of the time they fall off... or break off. But looking at your coin perhasp a strike though.?

    And ill tell you why...lamination when present on a coin can be one area on the surface, but more likely more than 1 spot.... more cracking than pitting ... on the coin.

    With those photos and your description it looks more like a strike through than anything else to me.

    upload_2022-7-2_23-42-48.jpeg This could be a greaser. I found a dime with grease still in place and when removed it left an incused area . check it out! Yours might be a little more extreme though.

    Using the terms incused and raised in questioning is helpful from the start. Photos are often difficult to tell, and the OP, having the coin in hand, can tell easily.
