    I've never seen one like this. Is it an error or PMD.

    It sure didn't leave the mint in that condition.
    Your cent is corroded, PMD.

    Possibly a urinal coin.

    I thought so too at first, but I always test for glue. Whatever it is it's not glue.

    I agree, very unusual. The center part surrounding lincoln and the date is raised . The outer part almost looks like a split planchet but in god we trust is clear and legible as is the date on the raised portion. The only distorted part is lincoln.

    Definitely not a capped die. An acetone soak should remove the adhered substance, if not xylene will. The dark areas are stains and environmental damage

    I agree, at best maybe a planchet error.

    Think this through a minute. How is a coin going to have fully struck design but also raised areas after being struck with tons of force?

    It's not a planchet defect nor die chips/damage (which would leave a raised area. Nothing more than a damaged cent.
