Under the right lighting this thing pops....and actually it has two bisecting die cracks.

The lines on your coin look more like linear plating bisters, not cracks
Well they are raised on the surface and solid nothing like any blisters ive seen.
However small cents arent in my wheelhouse, really don't collect at all just have aquired a few in my day.
It's worth noting that they made them in both plated steel and plated zinc in most years until they quit minting the penny altogether. The exceptions are 2008, where only steel was used, and 2010, where only zinc was used.
Also, I agree that the lines are plating flaws, not die cracks.
There are several off-metal errors from when they were using both zinc and steel, and marking the steel ones. The 2006 Magnetic and 2006-P Non-Magnetic are the most well-known of them, there are a couple others from prior years as well.
That makes cents. Why put holes in the book then. Even has a hole for a dot coin. What the hell is that?
Did they circulate those of metal coins?
I'm assuming you're talking about 1936? They were minted in 1937 before the George VI dies arrived, but were never released to circulation. Less than 10 are known today. The same holds true for dimes with the dot. Quarters with a dot did circulate but are somewhat low mintage.
Possibly. I've read that some of them were set-issue coins made on the wrong planchets, but it's likely that some were circulation strikes as well. I personally don't count them towards the set, regardless.
