No prob, I can fix your title. However, your cent is not suffering from a lamination, but rather zinc rot. This one is a spender.

I see what we say Rot Zinc. I will give away this coin as soon it is possible. Is no way to stop this and later no store will take.

Zincolns cannot have a lamination they are plated with pure copper and the core is zinc. Technically the core could have a lamination before it gets plated...I guess?

Post mint damage morphing to zinc rot. Zinc rot being white? Maybe you meant grey, the colour of zinc. Once zinc rot sets in, dirt and other factors influence colouring.

Ouch - one of the worst cases of zinc rot I've ever seen. Spend it quickly before it melts away.
