    In all copper Cents they are called Occluded gas bubbles

    Thank you, is it worth collecting, common, or worth anything?

    It's rather common and has no added value. In fact, it's possible that those will pop down the road and the zinc below will begin to rust. Feel free to spend it; you'll find more over time.

    A nice zinc plating bubble. Don't puncture it. The coin will rot faster than normal.

    Ty for your advice, I don't think I could though. It's really hard, lol

    Easy to puncture the bubble...use an old sewing machine needle.

    But if you are keeping it, don't do that!...Spark

    Even a toothpick has been know to pop a plating blister.
