Coin looks carved into with a rotary tool, the design of Lincoln's face would not be stuck so deep into the coin. The area should be showing zinc which is gray in color or black, since that is not the case it looks like someone stained it as well.

The reverse image, on the rim above the C looks like zinc rot.
I wonder if it is possible for the zinc to have rotted under the copper plating and then the copper plating depressed into the cavity?

Looks like possibly has bubnles, but i do think it a mint error beacause of the color of the coin I would go to a coin shop or send it in to have it looked at.. Graded!!!

I got a penny similiar to the last pic but mine has 3 sections out of it. I read somewhere what it was caused by. I'll look for the info n send it.
