Ok, so I've tried soap and water, soaking it in vinegar and simply scratching to get whatever this is off but nothing has worked even a little. Can anyone help me figure out what this could possibly be?

Thanks.

Environmental damage of some sort. From the bottom of a car cup holder?

Looks like preferential toning due to exposure to a chemical. What surface the coin was resting on had a similar striped pattern.


Added: in this particular case, scratching was fine because this cent is only worth face value, but I would caution you against employing a destructive test like this. We are all learning here and this could be a pretty cheap lesson for you to learn.

Obverse is probably a fingerprint. Very spendable.

Lines looks way too straight for a fingerprint.

@coop, my first thought was a fingerprint too, but I rejected this because of how straight those lines are.

Some cupholders have that pattern on the bottom to prevent sliding.
