Can't really say what's going on with the ear. I'm only familiar with this one from 1984 and it doesn't really look like your pictures (?). Hopefully other error experts will chime in!

Based on your total picture of the obverse, it appears to be blistered plating on the neck, collar and the beard line which appears to follow upwards towards the bottom of the ear. Without clearer pics of the area in question I'd have to say it is plating blisters. I'm not seeing a defined doubled ear as Rothery's picture shows which is prominent on this year DDO/Doubled Ear. Just my opinion.

Edit: But, I just noticed the 8 in the date which looks very odd and may be a variety DDO as well. There are numerous DDO's for this year and most show doubling on the numbers of the date. Just FYI. Check out Coppercoins.com to see if you may have a match. Maybe so, maybe not, but the 8 caught my attention.

Looks like a plating blister is opening up under the eight. Zinc rot soon to follow.

Without seeing clearer pictures to tell what you have, and to see if there is in fact a plating blister under the 8 which I am not seeing, here is a picture from Coppercoins.com to explain what I am seeing in the date of your coin. This is an example of Coppercoins 1DO-006. Not worth a lot but it may very well be a minor variety and worth throwing in a 2x2 and keeping for your collection. Only you can tell with this coin in hand unless you post extremely clear and detailed pictures where we can possibly help you. Hope this helps.

Edit: Sorry Dave, my post crossed yours. 003 does look like more of a match.

Thanks everyone, I have not been on in a while but I have kept this penny and will look at the copper coin information to see if I have a match. Again thanks for all the help.

The 1983 & 1984 Were the most over polished dies as there were so many die clashes on those years. To keep the dies going, they keep giving a lot of polishing on them. Note the devices on the reverse of your coin are showing this extreme die polishing. No premium for this just something to know about, so you can move on to the next coin. Spenders
