Looks to be toning--a reaction of the copper when exposed to environmental agents. Some staining may be in-play as well. Not uncommon with Lincoln cents. The pebbly surface is likely die to 'dust' issues with the zinc core, to include the emergence of plating bubbles--not uncommon with earlier zinc core cents.

Toning is a natural occurrence when the copper oxidizes.

Too many hobbies .... too much work .... not enough time.

It's toning - pretty common, all of them tone in many different ways. If you like it, KEEP it!
