There are numerous places that you can see zinc rot at work. One of them poor old Abe can see as it's right in front of him. There's Zinc rot on the date and mintmark as well. What I don't understand is that large gouge at 3:00. It's large and deep. No signs of displaced metal as in PMD. On a Zinc Cent that should be white from the metal under the copper coating. It's completely covered in copper. No sign of damage. I'm thinking a planchet flaw. Can anyone confirm or deny? Please state your reasoning. Thank you.
