That is a coin that is full of gas. Gas bubbles from the zinc core, the copper plating didn't adhere to it very well. Once they break open, zinc rot will start and this coin will slowly dissolve into dust.

It is a plating issue, zinc dust trapped between the zinc core and the copper plating. Spendable.

Nothing good. Just copper plating over a lot of zinc dust. (Forgot it's shower before plating)
