Is this just zinc rot, or is it an error? I cannot identify it. I thought multistruck, but the reverse makes me think,,, not. Please help.

Its time is being reduced when more oxygen reaches the zinc. Spend it as it is being broke down more as time goes on. Split plating allows it to break down.

Literally worthless, and if it is placed into the environment it will cease to exist in less than a year. And they said the copper pennies were expensive to produce. I guess the labor, machinery, and other overhead has no value.
