    All the copper plating has been removed leaving the zinc core which will probably rot away.

    I think you paid $1.49 too much for a damaged coin.
    The initials are the right size.

    That isn’t a cud, a cud involves the rim. What you have are called a Die Chips.
    Also indicate where you see DDR, it looks like an ordinary cent.
     
    Correct typo

    Greenstang got a reaction from Mr.Bill347 in 2021 P Roosevelt Dime: Is this an example of a "strike through"? two indentations on the jugular that looks like a vampire bat bite   
    Welcome to the Forum
     
    Those are not a struck through, they are  bag marks from the edges of other coins caused when they were transported in bulk bags, hence the term “ bag marks”

    Greenstang got a reaction from James Zyskowski in 1991 penny ?   
    I agree
    We see these from time to time on the forum. Just a cent that has been plated.
    They are actually considered damage.

    There’s not much of a premium for minor Grease Filled Dies, they are just too common, although some one who collects this sort of thing might give you a dollar or so. Generally it has to be at least 75% filled to have any substantial value.

    Greenstang got a reaction from kellyt in Scales - what’s a good coin scale   
    Whatever scale you get, make sure it reads to at least two decimal points.
    One decimal point is not good enough for coins.

    What you are describing as extra letters and numbers simply can't happen during the striking o a coin. (With the rare exception of a dropped letter) .
    The devices on a die are pemanently engraved in the striking die so these are the only letters, numbers that will show up on the coin.
     What you have is just damage that is causing Pareidolia. (A term we use for seeing something that isn't there).
