Well, the page to the left is some info about the coin missing a clad layer.

It could be that, or from the second link, that the copper content managed to get to the surface of your coin.

It looks like post-mint coloring applied. Joshua's CoinCommunity reference talks about 'annealing error' but I can't figure out what that means. If it were me, I would not offer anything more than 25 cents to buy this coin. See close-up photo.
