. Those are caused by trapped gas from zinc dust under the copper plating.

As noted, just zinc bubbles. A common occurrence that still plagues

Very nice plating bubble on the reverse. Might want to keep it as a fun curiosity.

Those bubbles WILL rupture and that's when zinc rot sets in, eating away at the coin. You could say zinc rot has already begun.
