It's mechanical damage from a counting machine or other device. The copper have been freshly scraped because of the lighter color of the marks in question. It could have also been carved with a stick pin as a joke.

That first image is really nice. It allows for enlarging and seeing the die chip well. It even appears to have a crack running up his nose to his forehead.

Split plating on the letters and very common. My image shows what else is going on and it's all common anomalies you will see on these plated cents.
