Hard to tell anything from that photo. It looks like it was shot through a screen door.
We need a clear photo showing the details of the coin.

Way too pixelated. Please use your phone's camera directly, please no screen shots of your monitor, thanks.

Thank you all, still learning to take a picture but it's hard for me. I just took a picture while looking at the digital microscope that's why it came out like it was shot in front of the screen door. Appreciate the info. &

It is best to not take a photo of the monitor screen. If your scope uses a memory card,take the photo and put it on the card and then transfer from memory card to CCF.

Yes, please, use whatever method the digital scope has to save images and transfer those image files to your phone or computer for editing and uploading to CCF.

This is a plated zinc cent, so the plating is probably split on the bottom right side of the initials. So I'm guessing you are see gray on that area? That would be where the split happened. The other raised area is zinc rot.

Here's a direct shot from my phone, hope it's good enough to distinguish if it's an error or just a damage coin.

I think coop is right, this is just zinc rot showing it's ugly head. Not a mint error, just post mint damage ( PMD). Zinc rot is bad.

I can see why it got your attention. Very symetrical and the same size as the individual letters of FG.

Zinc rot/blister is what I was thinking a well.
Words of encouragement are one of the major food groups. We need to consume them regularly to thrive and grow.
