Could someone give a look at the obverse and provide opinion as to what's going on. Thanks much.

@na, sorry but that isn't a mint error. I can't tell from the pic, but if that part of the coin is incuse, then someone has squished this cent and another one in a machinist's vice and transferred part of the design of that coin onto this one. On the other hand, if that part of the coin is proud, then this is dried adhesive from sticking two coins together. Either way, it didn't leave the mint looking like that.

Also, welcome to CCF!

Looks like some type of wax/glue that has been squeezed between two coins and that glue stuck on yours.

nice pictures

definitely glue. You can tell by the way the glue has dried clear. You can see the design & device's underneath. Most of the area beneath the glue still has that shiny copper look. The glue has prevented those areas from oxidizing/toning at the same rate as the rest of the coin

I agree, give it an acetone bath and it will likely disappear.
