I wouldn't call myself a collector, nor have I inherited any coins. I do have quite a few coins that I have kept simply because they look different. I would like an opinion on this penny please.

It appears to have a zinc rot bubble at the mint mark, and it is showing dirt or burn marks on the reverse. I would call that a spender.

To CCF! Zinc rot is showing on the mintmark. It's a spender.
