If you're referring to a deformation of the metal on top of the rim and right of the gouge, I'm not sure what caused that.
Tell him what he's won, Don Pardo!
Maybe. The gouge in the coin could be PMD or it could be a planchet defect. I'm inclined to lean towards the latter because of the slight crack that can be seen in the rim beyond the gouge.
As for the small raised portion on top of the rim and south of the gouge - yes, that does appear to have been caused by a slight scratch or tiny gouge in the outer edge of the die.
