Appears to be a " dryer coin". A machine damaged coin that was caught in a spinning/crushing motion. Notice the wear further inside the folded over rim. It may not have been an actual dryer, but it was spun in some sort of mechanical device (coin sorter?).
There was a thread yesterday of one like this.

It's not a mint error. Something evil was done to this poor Abe. A smaller round item attached to the reverse?

@veronicasue, first welcome to CCF. Second, I agree with the others that this damage occured after the coin was struck. I'm leaning toward a glue ir adhesive residue also, but you might be able to confirm this if you soaked the coin in acetone. This would most likely remove an adhesive.

To me it looks like it got close to some high heat with the middle being slightly protected by whatever was holding it. Other than the visual ugliness it seems to be undamaged compared to the dryer coins , I looked at it and thought it got burned some how.

Just my one cent worth.

Looks like glue, possibly from a sticker.

It looks like acid damage.
