    Like Ed said.
    When some thing is punched/struck into the surface after minting, there will almost always be a raised area on the opposite side of the coin.
    It looks like someone turned it over and struck it from that side as well.
    That is what is giving it that "crater" effect.

    Cool Noel, you have been doing some good Lincoln searching and studying! I had to look up slag inclusion, first time I've heard of it! Kudo's to you!
