It wouldn't even be possible for that date to be on there anyways
There's something there looks like it said 1835 lol
Your coin is a struck on a zinc planchet with copper plating approx. 8 microns (0.0003 inches) thick. Defects like plating blisters/bubbles and zinc rot (corrosion) is common. Also, copper is a very reactive metal and subject to staining and tarnish.
That's why members can say unequivocally, that you're seeing stray marks and/or damage. Nothing more.
Edit to add: I missed the LOL on your last post. Sounds like you figured it out
Or maybe Apophenia?
Apophenia is the tendency to perceive meaningful connections between unrelated things. The term was coined by psychiatrist Klaus Conrad in his 1958 publication on the beginning stages of schizophrenia. He defined it as "unmotivated seeing of connections [accompanied by] a specific feeling of abnormal meaningfulness".
So, maybe we should call the person with this problem a pareidoliopheniac !
For a made up word, that's excellent
