Hey everyone,
So, I'm still new to the hobby and I stumbled upon this coin. This looked kind of odd to me and I was wondering if I could reach out for some education on it. The penny looks lie it has raised extra metal in a line that travels in the field and onto Lincoln's chest. Is this just damage? I tried to post a few angles hopefully it captured it well enough. Anyways, thank you all for the help.

Yes those are linear plating bubbles. Often times you can depress them with a wooden toothpick. Not damage, but also doesn't add value to the coin.

The color was either altered, or just turned that color. Sometimes people mess with the color to make everyone think this coin was never plated. The bubble shows us it was plated and the color is all that changed.

I concur. It's a spender.
