paddyman98 : The coin is made of copper plated zinc and I do see some of the zinc on area's of the coin.
The weight is 2.6 g. The reeding does go all around the coin - I found a weak area where the reeding is not so prominent.

Assuming the cents were sent in a ballistic bag to an outside vendor to process for banks, there must be some sort of automated handling machines to get them into rolls. The Off Center cent is going to have a slightly larger diameter, so maybe the handling equipment caused the damage.

cents and nickels (mostly) with this effect.
It's not reeding, it's not another error on the coin;
it's damage from the counting/wrapping machinery.
