Looks like mint damage to me. A hole in the face.

No, not mint damage. More like it was used in a mechanical coin changer that was worn around the waist. The coins were held in place by a small metal plate that had pressure applied from a spring. As one can imagine, these were notably hard on coins. Such devices were popular until the early 1970's, which correlates to these markings typically only appearing on coins that were minted during this time period (or earlier).
