Incomplete Planchet Error. Aka 'Straight Clipped Planchet'
I'm not completely sure about the date. I have some thoughts.
rlly? it just looks like it was hit by a hammer
When you look at so many of these for over 35 years (twice your age) you can tell what it may be.
The upraised rim anomaly how it ends and slight Blakesley effect is enough evidence for me.

Too bad the date was lost
Thanks for your input Paddyman! I read about the Blakesley effect, and the coin does seem to have some opposite rim damage as well as on the "i" in Liberty. I'm trying to determine whether I should send the coin in for evaluation or grading.
Thanks for your input Alurid. I have not weighed the coin, but just ordered a coin scale so I can do that. From what I have read, it seems to be a clip that shows the Blakesley effect slightly opposite the clip. Just trying to determine what to do with the coin. Send for evaluation/grading or look for someone who collects minting errors who might want it.
I thought it was legit, but Paddy confirmed it.
Although the exact date may be ‘unimportant ‘, the fact that it isn’t complete is.
As usual, others will chime in but I think the value might be higher with a complete date
