The first images are showing die rolling lines. They are when the stock was being rolled they zinc had these lines on the stock material When they coin is struck it doesn't remove these lines:

Note on the off center cent, you can see the lines on the un-struck area and also weaker on the struck area. As the coin ages and the BU appearance goes away, you see these lines stronger for a time. Then eventually on the tops of devices these will eventually wear off the coin. Your coin is still showing them. Not a premium for the coin though, just an explanation of what they are.

On the reverse images from the left planter to the 'E' on ONE, that is called a linear plating bubble. Not a premium for the coin, again just an explanation. of what it is. It has trapped gas under the plating and can be flattened with a toothpick.

On the reverse of your coin it looks like between the arc of the two planters a hint of it going to the ONE CENT area. That area is most often affected with die clashes. Sometimes they are polished off the die. But on your coin it appears to be an affect called PIDT.

Again not a premium for the coin, just an explanation of what is going on. This is caused breakdown from alteration by polishing. But there is no premium for these as they are just a die event. Something that will appear on all coins struck and can affect as much as half of the coins struck with that die. So there is not premium for this. This information is part of your train for searching coins. Knowing that is, allows you to move onto the next coin. Happy searching with you new information as to what your are seeing on your coins in future searches, that allow you to just move on.
