I'm back, lol.
This caught my eye while looking over a roll I exchange at the bank. It looked like something interesting even if its damaged and not worth a thing but to just keep it as a conversation piece.
Hard to take a decent picture of both sides with the color changes.


Everyone on this site has been very nice and helpful.

Good intuition @dha--that sure looks like damage to me:

It has been ground or scraped removing the high parts of the copper plating.

Looks like it went side walk surfing? Removed the plating from the coin. Not a plus for the coin. Just a damaged one now.
