1987 D plating and cracked rim

1987 D penny, here again the plating blisters. There looks to be a cracked rim, and also the plating on the reverse with the silver coming through is that just pmd or a plating error.

    Its a Ridge Ring caused by a worn out die, not a crack.

    The date and mm have die deterioration. If you're asking about the patch of silver coloring on the Left side of the Lincoln Memorial, its only staining
