I have here a 1982 circulated Lincoln cent and to me it looks
Like am ear on his shoulder? And perhaps he was doing something
New with his hair that day as well. Please take a look and
Advise me if I'm on to something?

@sev, first welcome to CCF. Second, that all sure looks like damage, but knowing the weight of this coin could help. Any chance that you can weigh it to the nearest 0.1 g? Maybe a postage scale?

Strange, almost looks like zinc rot but can't be at that weight.

What does the reverse look like? If it is damaged, then I would expect to see a push out opposite the affected bust area. If it is normal on the reverse, then I would think about a struck by grease area. So let's see what the reverse looks like first.

It doesn't bulge out here, so it is a struck through grease issue. But the damage to the plating on the rim on the reverse will not work out well for this coin in the future for this coin. (so how did I know where to see the opposite side of that area?)
Note the 'TY' on Liberty? Well the opposite of that on the reverse would be to the right of bay 2 and three.

So it could have been valuable but because of the issue with the damage on the rim it's pretty much worth a penny.

Yes worth a penny. My guess is beat up and face down in some kind of corrosive.
