My first reaction is it was totally immersed in an acid of some kind, like the product that is used to restore dates on worn-out Buffalo nickels.
When in doubt... don't.

What year is it? Can you provide an obverse pic as well?

Seeing who started this post, my guess is that it is a 1900-O.
But that is just a guess.

Yes, it looks similar to the reverse of the 1900-O VAM-59, which is an O/CC counterfeit of VAM-11

Lee knows me all too well. Yes, it’s a 1900-O.

I'm no expert in this department, but it looks too ugly to be a counterfeit.
My guess is genuine and abused.
