    Does anyone recognize this as an error?

    It is not an RPM. It is a crappy Zincoln. ~ Chris

    Oldhoopster It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    Split plating. It wasn't uncommon in the 80s to have the copper split along the mm. This exposes the zinc core, and over time, the zinc will start to corrode. The bubbly appearance is an indication that the zinc is corroding under the surface (similar to rust bubbling under the paint on a car fender)

    RPM's fall in the Variety Category different from a mint error. But that is not a RPM.
    This is what eventually happen to your Cent -

    Ugh. That's reminding me of a lot of medical images I'd rather forget.
