2016 Nickel - Oversized/Flattened bead between DG

Found a 2016 nickel with the bead between the D and G on obverse noticeably larger than the one after the G. Also appears flattened, but not from wear damage.

Probably taken a hit that has slightly flattened it.
Pretty sure it didn't look like that when the coin was struck.
