    Yes.. It's a real copper plated zinc cent which its Copper plating has been Compromised. The inner zinc is rotting.

    It's one normal struck Cent with Environmental Damage. Not a mint error of any kind.

    Here are some metal detected coins I have found.
    Copper plated zinc cents don't last that long when exposed to the elements.

    I have a number of ugly rotting ones as well. It's the zinc and yours is no exception. Chalk it up to environmentally damaged.

    @paddyman98 I now refer to all of them as "Covid coins." LOL
