Looks PMD, possible liquid contact and then increased oxidation there - maybe the coin was in or had something spilled on the obverse.

Here's a close up of the effected area. There seems to be a line through the center of the indentation that looks like it could be a metal flaw. There doesn't seem to be any pitting that you would expect with  corrosion.
