1934 Penny PMD?

Does this one look like it was damaged a long time ago, just a split penny?
Thank you!

This is what's called a "lam error", or lamination error.
These "split lifting lams", are pretty cool with their big.

I agree this is a lamination.

If I remember correctly, they are caused from improperly mixing the metal alloy (similar to "woodies").

Improper mixing can cause improper bonding and can allow different "layers" to separate and start to peel or flake away. Some peeling laminations are pretty extreme.
