I was wondering if this was some sort of error or if the coin has been damaged/worn out? I would love any advice on knowledge of the coin or how to determine error coins from damaged coins!

    That's what happens to copper plated zinc cents when exposed to liquids and chemicals.

    I metal detect and I have found hundreds of corroded cents such as yours.. Many even worse!
