I just called Global Upholstery. The rep asked me if the cutout was located on the head end and not the butt end. I replied "Yes". He responded by telling me that this is not an uncommon thing and that it was done by the tanners for different reasons. He said it could have been some sort of natural blemish that would have been useless and they took the liberty of cutting it out. He said that as long as I don't cut it, I can return it for a different hide. Global does not tan the hides and have no control over things like this. The rest of it looks fine.
