That is normally referred to as a Woody. Nice find

Look up woodgrain in the CCF glossary for a definition.

Nice woody! The pattern occurs when the copper in the cent is not properly mixed with the tin and zinc.

Yes , it's a nice woody ,but I thought you were referring to that nasty gouge on reverse . Can you show us a photo of obverse ?

Does the obverse (heads) also show that pattern?

Note that even the area that had some block age of grease on it, still shows the woody?
