    Since 1982 cent coins are zinc with a thin copper plating. Abrade off the copper and this is what you have.

    Not a mint error. The rim on the reverse reminds me of a dryer coin. Sometimes a coin will get caught between the drum and the wall of a dryer and spin around enough to damage the rim in the way yours looks.
