Is this Zinc showing through? I can't tell if it's heating damage or a plating error of some kind. Any thoughts?

Someone may have polished the coin and weakened the plating?

Is the color closer to blue or black/gray?

Nice pics. Maybe odd toning from being touched? Maybe Mike needs a PM on this one?

It's a grayish color. I don't see any other evidence of polishing or damage so I'm not sure whaat it could be.

It is toning. Some of those proof Zincolns just tone that way.

I was leaning towards incomplete plating issue (if the color was gray/black) I have a 2009S mint set (in OGP) that is toning, but the colors are more blueish/purple.....

It's be nice to have a proof error. I'm hoping it's a plating issue.

I wonder if it was stored in a holder with a material that only touched the high spots on the obverse, causing the color change.

That may be, but it's seems like an error to me. I hope it's a legit error. I'm gonna try to get better pics later. If this is a plating error, would it be considered an incomplete plating error?

This is the last batch of pics, I promise. Sorry I'm asking so much! Hope these help identify what happened to my coin.
