Hi lino,

This looks to be environmental damage, not missing copper plating, unless I'm mistaken. There appears to be plating bubbles on the steps on the reverse, which is why I think this is just discoloring and not a strike on a pure zinc planchet. If that's the case, it'll be worth face value. If it's really an error coin where the copper is missing, then it'd be worth something more, but I'm not sure how much.

Looks like the coin was plated, and someone added zinc on the outside of the plating. If it were missing the plating, then the fields would be smooth. (not rough looking)

There are YouTube videos that show how you can do this. Just a spendable coin. The original surface was altered.
