Strange black lines on both sides of the penny. What is it from when both sides are affected

Most likely an Improper Alloy Mixture. Either that or environmental damage/toning of some sort.

Looks more like roller lines. You can search "Roller Lines" in the search box in the upper left of the page for more topics on the subject.
Here's an example from the search that explains what they are.

Roller lines right! My bad, that would make sense.

I agree it looks like a case of roller lines.

They are roller lines and kinda common in the 80's. If the lines are on both sides and the coin is in nice condition I tend to keep a few in 2x2's.

The big difference between roller lines and improper metal mixture is that the rolling lines are just topical. They wear off the coin as it is circulated. The bad mixture is seen though the planchet material and does not wear off the coin.
