    I highlighted it for full effect, but the original isn't much different.

    Oldhoopster It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    Looks like split plating around the mm which led to zinc rot underneath. Split plating around the mm was common in 80s zincolns. It's not a RPM

    I agree.. Plating issue around mint mark :yack:

    There are dozens of threads on CoinTalk with the same question. Most are plating issues.

    Wow, is my imagination that much more active? (aka hallucinating lol) but am I the only one that sees the giant shadow of a D right there in roughly the same style and orientation of the mint mark? This isn't the first time I've seen this, when I first saw it I just immediately thought it was drift of some zinc rot but that was on first strike. Like a "burn" on strike and much like smoke it drifts and spreads wide on the surface of the coin over a long period of time.

    Yes, you're letting your imagination control the reality of the situation.
