What is your question?

I describe this coin as ugly, stained, damaged, and hardly worth the one cent that it is labeled as. Spend it while you can!

@smp, I agree. The various gouges, including that odd circular one on the rev, are all explainable as damage.

I suspect too--given the very soft images posted-- that we may be seeing an early-stage dryer coin (early, uniformly flattened devices on the obverse and a slightly pronounced rim). Might be interesting to see the coin in-hand.

OK, lets see, strange very dark spots on the reverse - cannot tell if raised or incused, I see no corresponding mark on the obverse at all.
Staining all over the coin
Coin roller damage on the obverse
All so far PMD.
Better pictures and a description of what you see is needed here.

Nothing that could have happened during the
striking of the coin so it is PMD.

wow! Huge difference in the photos! the second set are great.
now, that big divot on the reverse corresponds to a dent I see on Lincoln's collar by the back of the neck. this was intentional damage. As were the other smaller divots too as they are similar to the big one.
This coin just has post mint damage all over it, just a spender.

Removal of the plating, exposes the zinc under to start rotting.

Always at least try to describe what you see going on with your coin. I agree, this is post mint damage and not worth saving. Keep searching!
