So this popped coin popped up in my stash. I assume this is post production damage, but I just wanted to verify on here.

That's just some serious zinc rot bubbles.

Zinc rot. Highly contagious.
Dispose of it before it spreads to your other coins.

Yep. Just like chrome plating. Improperly cleaned base metal plated over.

Haha I remember that penny! Found it with my metal detector in 2018. Cleaned it and dumped it along with my other finds at the bank into a savings account. Glad to see it's still circulating although it has gotten quite dirty since I had it. Spend it, keep it circulating XD

Poor ol' Abe! He deserves better than this. Such a great design wasted on zinc.

I suppose all of our coins are biodegradable, the Zincolns just prove that much more quickly. Here are some numbers I wanted to consider concerning Zincolns. This concerns only the production in 1983 from all mints:

14,182,619,538 cents minted in BS/proof
That's 35,456,548,845 grams of copper-plated zinc
That is, in turn, 78,004,407.459 pounds
Which is just over 39,000 tons of copper-plated zinc pushed out.

They will most likely disappear into dust and that is for just one year's production. The proofs, while being much more likely to be saved, had a mintage over 2,000 times less than either P or D mint alone. I may just be adding to jbuck's case for the abolition of the penny.

So you're saying take pictures of all our slabbed Zincolns today. Because our great great grandchildren will have slabs of dust!
