Sharper photos--obverse and reverse--would be very welcome.

At first glance, the coin appears damaged--not a minting error.

. When posting photos,it is always best to post one full coin photo of the obverse and one full coin photo of the reverse as well as one or two close ups when and where needed. Your coin may have been heated.

Looks like heat damage. Maybe from a fire or blow torch, hard to say the source.

Your questions are of no bother. Please continue to ask your questions, we learn from each other. You are part of our family now, so please feel welcomed and wanted, ok?
ça va bien aller

Please show both sides of the coin when posting.
As merclover stated, it looks like heat damage causing the copper layer to expand.

Or if there is a split planchet and acid reached the zinc core, it can alter the zinc, dissolving the zinc. Either way it is a damaged coin.
