Good afternoon. I'm unsure what happened to this coin. There appears to be legends mixed in with the color variations. Here's a look. Thanks...

Looks like an alter surface. (Possible it had painting by a young artist?)

Severe toning causing environmental damage. Not an error.

@skippy, I agree that this is surface toning, but you can confirm for yourself that it isn't a off-metal planchet by checking the weight.

That's called Environmental Damage, which isn't an error. PSD. Spendable.

Spence, sorry about that. I did check the weight and at first it spiked, then settled at 2.60 gr. A tad above by by no means unusually normal. And thanks everyone...
