    nicely damaged isn't it ?

    you should be able to deduce a few years that it could be.
    you can clearly see 19
    then an ending 4
    and a curved bottom of the 2nd to last number ...
    and you know it's a pre 1968 cent from it's design.
    now look at the design of each preceeding years (it's not a 4, 2 or 1) ...

    the top gouge was something spinning from left to right by looking at the displaced metal and shape of the cavity. About the same for the bottom one.

    on the reverse, looks like someone was trying to center it .. stuff we normally do for lathe work. or maybe just for fun to balance it on a toothpick or pencil.

    It's a penny. It's damaged. It's not an error.
    It's worth 1 cent. Spend it.
    If I had to guess I would say 1964-D as it looks like copper.

    This is funny. You know what I said about the reverse and the center punch (two of them actually). I googled balance cent on a toothpick and here are the instructions .. kinda.

    *** except you HAVE to use a 20 cent coin per the instructions.

    Yes, it's PMD (post minting damage) not an error. You can see how the metal was pushed around outside the gouged areas.

    Looks like a 1964.
