It's just split plating, very common with the copper plated zinc cents. Here is a link that explains and shows it well.

We try very hard to make CCF a friendly place, with a focus on learning. You should expect to be treated with respect here. Welcome!

Also, I agree with @make's assessment of this being split plate doubling. The underlying zinc core is very clearly visible.

On the date on the right side you can see on the fields a beginning of DDD. Die Deterioration Doubling. This is always only on the fields and in the direction to the closest rim.(neither have a premium. Just a spender.

I agree, split plating. Next stop, zinc rot since the zinc is now exposed. With zinc rot,the coin literally eats itself. Spend it while you can!

Please always show us the entire coin, both sides so we can better assist you. Thanks!
