What am I looking at? The weight is 2.5 so no worn off wear. There's a lot to be seen.

    From what I can see he has a die chip on his nose (cute but not worth much) and there is some either Die Deterioration Doubling where the die edges have started to crumble or Machine Doubling which involves a die moving during the strike. Hang on, I'm sure you'll get more responses.

    Oh...BTW...welcome to CT

    Welcome to CT! Your coin is heavily damaged. The copper is worn off exposing the zinc core. Cu-zinc cents weigh 2.5g with a +\- .10g, therefore it can be damaged/worn and still be within the weight tolerance.

    Welcome to CT. You have an nice example of a crappy Zincoln cent with plating issues. NAV, no added value. Spend it before it dissolves.
