    Paredolia. Some Stain or mark makes it look that way. Unless someone went 10,000 years into the future and picked one up then ;)

    There is no reason at all for the US Mint to put an extra digit on the date. Since it's a Copper Plated Zinc Cent then only way that could be something that looks like a number 1 would be a minor plating issue called a linear plating bubble which to me does not look like it could be

    Drats.... The mint will still be making zinc cents 10,000 years from now...

    I don't understand your comment about stains and numbers, thus
    (1) what is the black area on the coin ? and why is it black ?

    (2) what number "1". I don't see a number "1"
    (3) your images are out of focus and difficult to see any detail.

    To the left of the numeral 2.. Looks like a slight slanted 1

    Of course any "line" can be confused with a number 1, unless you know it's not a number one. Here is an example of a 1 from 2019

    Of course though here's an example of a kinda "1" to the right of the 1991
