1920s Lincoln Wheat cent. I have some pieces of the old blue cardboard books if wheat pennies. First time popping them out and checking the backs. What's your thoughts on this one?

*** Edited by Staff to Add Year / Mintmark / Denomination to Title. It's very important to have in the title. ***

Looks oddly shiny. Has this side been plated?

100% pure acetone. Read up on it using the search box upper left of page before you use it.

Appears to be a foreign substance on the coins surface.

Yes, some form of crud--possibly a died liquid. Try a long soak in 100% acetone.
