toning of a coin is not an error, but I would like to see, like Coinfrog has stated full coin images up-right.
I tried turning my phone over to view the coin properly, but auto rotate mucks up my attempt.

I think the OP is referring to the lines that look like it is a circulated woody.

The odd discoloration (patches of shiny light gold interspersed between heavy brown toning) point to some sort of environmental or chemical exposure I think.

Agree, toning caused by exposure to an environmental agent--as blotchy as it may be. Not terribly uncommon. Of the hoard of pre-1950s wheat cents I have squirreled away, I'd say 5% of them have similar toning. Me being me, I'd hang onto it.

Don't think it's an error, but the toning looks very nice.

To me it's just a hole filler . Looks like the obverse was cleaned then artificaly toned . The coin is pretty beat , does not look like an error . Worth about 3 .

In Memory of Butch L.
and Jim U. rest in peace .
