Odd and neat looking but more common than you think. Many Cents from the 80's looked similar and some really horrible. It appears that when the Mint changed from all Copper to those Zinc things, the material was never really made well and/or the Mint didn't know what they were doing yet. If you check out many Pennies made from 83 to 89, you would see all kinds of oddball dappearances. Many people see the odd almost doubled rim effect right through all the lettering. Many have those bubbles.
