    More of an anomaly - the copper
    plating has 'shifted' from the striking
    pressure of the coin (about 65 tons)

    This is a fairly common effect, easily
    found in change or rolls, and carries
    no error premium, as far as I know.

    (that 'grey' area to the right of the D
    mintmark, for example, is the zinc
    core exposed by the copper plating
    shifting when the coin was struck.

    This is common on Zinc Cents.
