Getting error when running SF_Metadata 'Retrieve' for 1 custom object

Have successfully run many SF_Metadata 'Retrieve' extracts, for many custom objects in one of our Full Sandboxes, but have hit an error for 1 specific object ( API name : Zip_Code__c ). Can't figure out what the issue may be. Successful SF_Replicate & SF_Refresh executions are running on this object.

This object shows up on an SF_Metadata 'List' ('CustomObject', '*') extract. see image below for verification.

But I get the error below when running the SF_Metadata 'Retrieve' when this is the only row in the input table.
