Is this split plating? Seems to be most prominent on the obverse.

May have been plated--not uncommon with '43 cents; only this plating job is a bit rough (if indeed plated).

Just a heavily plated coin. Not done by the mint. PMD

The coin may have been rusty. The rust was not removed, but plated over. Soon it will turn rusty again. Note the top of top of the right wheat field area.

That makes sense! This is probably why it weighs 2.8g as opposed to 2.7g
