As mentioned above, what you see
occurred after the coin was in circulation.
The surfaces are damaged; not an error of any kind.
Literally anything in the environment that your coin came in contact could potentially do something like that. No way to nail it down further.
Exposure to the elements.. Soil, sand, dirt, water, heat and chemicals.
They are basically dirty coins
Here are some Metal Detected coins I have found with issues on the clad layer and even Nickels -
Your coin is no different from the above coins. It is damaged by the environment. It just tones differently due to what elements it was exposed to. Any effort to prove otherwise is a waste on your behalf. Wasted time, wasted effort, wasted energy and wasted money. That's foolish!
Nickel Oxide is black and Copper oxide is black.
The cladding is cupronickel
You'd be wasting your time and money, but if that is what you like to do, go for it.
