Badly beat up Zincoln . Zinc coming through on the hits . Don't know about the D MM . It doesn't seem to be an error .
Don't take life too seriously and remember it is just a passing fad ......

It is zinc rot but, not knowing what your question is keeps me guessing to the answer you are looking for.

Lol what do you think my question coukd be if I ask for help and pit up a penny like this. Not everybody knows everything and looking for knowledge. Only simple question is very simple doubling on mint mark and reverse copper towards left aide

I see what the problem is. You need to moisturize. Out here we call that Michigan finger.
The collection is in your mind. Dispose of your albums and free your mind from the tyranny of holes.

You are new here and welcome to the best of all internet coin forums.

Alas our experts are not mind readers ... so please be mindful for us to best help you that your post should not only include the denomination/date/mm that our Admin folks added for you .... but equally important some words from you to tell us what you see of interest.

The coin you posted is zincoln rot ... believe that has already been said.
Take a look at my other hobby ... http://www.finewoodcrafter.com
Too many hobbies .... too much work .... not enough time.

to the forum!

Since 1982, US cents have been made of a Copper plated Zinc planchet. The Copper plating is very thin and if this gets a crack or hole in it, even microscopic, it can let moisture get inside. Once moisture gets under the Copper plating, a reaction starts that literally eats the Zinc away leaving a hollow Copper shell.

This is what is happening to your coin. Collectors call it "Zinc Rot".
