It looks like that zincoln has been severely abraded due to some sort of post-mint damage, which accounts for the missing mass.

Not an error, it is PMD.
An error can only occur during the striking of the coin and
there is no way that damage could happen at that time.
The surfaces have been ground down exposing the zinc core.
