you have to remember. Most people don't collect coins.
Some people use coins for artsy stuff .. becz if they damage it .. they can still use it for 1 cent. coins are the easiest and cheapest thing to use as non-currency as anything.
Someone probably wanted to see the inside of a zinc cent. Why not? I've done it.
take a closer look. clean it off.
it certainly didn't come from the mint that way.
there are a billion god-zillion + ways a coin can get damaged. or lint stuck on it.
maybe someone hammered something on top of it.
it's not from the mint. damaged
Thanks for posting good photos full image. I appreciate that.

The coin press uses a collar to maintain the diameter as the coin is struck. Notice how the rim is distorted outward. That will not occur on a strike through.
Just kidding. It's all circulation damage and intentional damage and no errors of any kind.
