I barely glance at zincoln cents that I get in change but even so I spotted a weird look to the date on this 1989-D cent. The scattered tiny bumps on the surface suggest corrosion of the zinc under the copper plating but the 8 (and to a lesser extent the two 9's) in the date sure look like some kind of doubling happened. Could this be an artifact of zinc corrosion? How would you explain it?
