    Abe has ditched plastic straws for the more environmentally correct copper plated zinc straws. I hope that's safe! Anyway, it looks like some sort of blistering issue on a 1987 D cent.

    Just to be numismatic and forum correct, here's the obverse and reverse.

    Old Abe knew best. Zinc is good for you.
    A great plating blister!

    Okay thanks, plating blister. I wasn't quite sure enough to add the "plating" part.
