Last one for a while. I really appreciate everyone's options. 

Found this Penny that looks to be severely  environmental  damage or is it one of the lamination error? 

Is it worth saving?  Can you imagine the history? Probably  buried somewhere  and some one came along  and dug it up after finding  it with a metal detector.  :D

who knows. I found  it in a bank roll.

Looks to me like glue or some other substance has been spilled on it. 

Soak it overnight in acetone and see if it comes off.

Agreed with Greenstang, Manuel.  I think we'll know more after an acetone bath on this one.

Any luck with the acetone bath yet?

Yes, for some reason, I had a hard time posting on chat, it will not allow me to reply. @Greenstang 

It turned out to be nail polish, lol pink to boot.

Well, Manuel, that's an interesting finding....man, do people do weird things to coins!  Looks like it's a regular old 1971-S with some rim dings under its pink coating.
