    For the most part. Plated zinc cents have plating issues not laminations, last i heard ZLincolns cannot have laminations. We might have to talk to @paddyman98 about that.

    Your coin looks damaged. Can you take some closer images of the coin. Crop out the un necessary background?

    Sorry, but it looks like damage. Definitely everything I can see on the obverse is damage, most likely hit by a car in the road. The picture is not clear on the reverse, but it looks like that was the side that was pushed into a hard surface. I find the difference between the colors on the obverse and reverse interesting, as if it lay on that road or parking lot long enough for the up side to be exposed more to the elements than the down side. Also, although it is not obvious, you mention it is all raised. If it were hit hard enough, the plating could have detached from the underlying zinc and given a raised look. If so, I would expect some give when given a gentle push. I am certainly no expert, so this may be totally wrong, although as a bicyclist I have seen a great many road-kill cents.
     
  11. And the front is old looking like a 1982 penny would be and the back is shiny like a 2020 penny should be

    Thanks for the better photos. Environmental damage has no set outcomes. That one surely has been damaged.

    Looks like damage to me. The difference in color means nothing. One side could of been sitting in a cars cup holder for some time in spilled liquids.
