The good thing is that it is 98 years old. The bad thing is that it is damaged. Who knows what this coin has been through over its lifetime. What I can guess is that it suffered a series of scratches that looks intentional. Also it was glued to something at one point.
Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 1 Cent / United States
Metal: 95% Copper, 5% Tin and Zinc
Value: $0.30 in G-4
