I believe what you have here is a plating bubble between the zinc coin and the copper plating. From another member:
Quote:
It involves a mix of improperly washed planchets, contaminated plating material, and plating at the wrong temperatures. Your coin has gas bubbles trapped underneath the copper plating that welled upward when the coin was struck. There are tons of these in circulation, and in fact are difficult to avoid completely in some issues, especially in D mint coins from 1983-1986. They seem nearly impossible to find without this effect to some minor degree."

Cents from the 80s-90s are all common, however, as far as specimens go there are a number of different varieties you could consider collecting.

In 1982, the Mint stopped making cents out of copper and switched to zinc to save money. 1982 cents also have a Large Date and a Small Date variety. In total, 1982 has 7 varieties:

1982-P Large Date copper
1982-P Small Date copper
1982-D Large Date copper
1982-P Large Date zinc
1982-P Small Date zinc
1982-D Large Date zinc
1982-D Small Date zinc
