Hi all, it's me again. I recently started coin roll hunting for the first time, and have racked up a sizable amount of variety year pennies to go through. I started again today and found this cent to be interesting(unfortunately rough condition), possibly one of the RPMs, I have attached photos of it below(forgive the rough quality; they were taken from my phone through my microscope), and a comparison to a known one. I would love to hear your opinions on it, and maybe even its potential value.

The copper "plate" is so thin. When the die struck it separated that shallow layer. Very common and a spender.

Keep searching.

Even the RPMs show the split plating. Note my coin above. But on that RPM, the RPM is a lot easier to see:
