I came across this while searching to fill an album. It has multiple flat sides(~12 but hard to count) instead of the solid smooth side. Same diameter as normal but weighs 3.24 grams. Any insight would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

Sure it is not a foreign planchet. In 1955 all the foreign coins was struck in Denver and your coin it is Philadelphia.

Double check your scale. I am leaning towards PMD not an error.

Normal but damaged cent. Even at 3.24 it is just within mint tolerance.

Yes looks like someone having fun with a normal cent. It didn't leave the mint looking like this.

PMD, someone has intentionally ruined a wheatie as you
can see the file marks on the edge.
A foreign planchet would have nothing to do with it as you
would need a special collar to create a 12 sided coin.

I'm thinking a crude attempt at spooning--didn't get too far. Does show aspects of experimentation.

Definitely PMD with someone having time on their hands. Not even close to a Canada replicate.

It would take only 30 seconds to make that on a grinder.

This cent was struck on a CENT planchet. Then it fell into the hands of some EVIL Dood with idle hands and a grinder. (If only his sister had more intact dolls that were ready to be be-headed or melted, then this coin would have been saved from this torture)

PMD
The planchets used for 12 sided coins, such as 1982-1996 Canadian cents, are round.
It' s the 12 sided collar that gives the coin its shape when struck.
