Am I seeing little numbers all over this coin?

Unless you are talking about 1974, I see no numbers, only a coin that has been in acid or coated with it. Or possibly, left in Coca-Cola for weeks. The surface would be the same

I found it in a parking lot, in a puddle of mud. I knew it was a coin and was rubbing it to get the dirt off while I checked for any other coins. When I looked at it this is what I saw.

Whatever caused it , it didn’t happen at the mint. It is some sort of damage.
What you think you are seeing is impossible to happen when the coin was struck.

I agree. I just found it was very strange.

This is for sure and the jury is still out over whether it's a mental illness or not. Hopefully it is because my other ones are getting lonely. But aren't a lot of the errors and oddities defined by terms like that. The devil in the queens hair or the polar bear with a cigar?
