Hello y coineverything

To help you, I enlarged your coin to see it better.

Thank you castor,
Much easier to see now. So my question is about the different color lines going across the coin, i did not know if this was a naturall age thing, or if the coin may have been cleaned at some point. I don't clean my coins, i leave them the way i receive and have only noticed this type of thing on the large cent coins.
Any thoughts?
Thanks.

Looks like what they call a "woodie" caused by an improper mixture of the alloy.
Looking at the original picture, it doesn't appear cleaned.
