Hello! My first post as a new member.

I found this 1988 Lincoln penny in pocket change and it has a curious "dot" below the date.

Any suggestions as to what this could be?

To CCF! Looks like a zinc rot bubble starting to form. It's Post Strike Damage ( PSD), not an error. It's worth face value.

Possible split plating with a straight pin. The zinc gets air an rises. spendable.

Thank you, both, for your expert words of wisdom.

I found it odd that the dot was right where the D would have gone if it was a Denver mint penny.

Gratefully yours.

People often do weird things to coins, causing them to get altered.
