Going to need closer pics to see what's going on for sure. Looks like a normal cent though.

I have seen what I think you are describing often. I believe it is caused when the mintmark is punched into the working die. Some metal is displaced and pushed upward on the die and thus creates a sunken area around the mm on the coins.

Is that a photo of a monitor showing the coin?

If your microscope takes photos,do it that way and post from your scope to CCF. Not a good idea to take a photo of the scope screen and post that pic.
