Welcome to the forum.

It's not easy to tell what's going on with your coin, but it could be a lamination which is a minor planchet error. If you can post a more clear image then I would be glad to help you further.

if you lay another penny over the top, does the 'marking' match up?

I am not sure here, could be toning from another coin sitting on top.
