is an interesting anomaly.
It would not have the strong Mint luster it does if it were dipped in acid
I don't really see anything suspicious about that seeing this coin is defective. Check out the obverse of the 1985 cent below at around 10 o'clock; same exact pattern
The patterns and seemingly random areas of plating/missing plating is all over the place on these coins. There is no consistent pattern they follow due to where and how contaminants play a factor in terms of where the plating bonds
@JCro57 Very nice examples of partially plated cents.
Adding the damaged and plated pieces for comparison makes this a good educational thread.

And @Oldhoopster , wait until you see my book!
really interesting and educational post to get me to click "Like" on images of Zincolns.
