I agree with everyone else: PMD.
You can plainly see the file/grind marks on the 'blank' side.

No there is no rim on the flat blank side. There wouldn't be a rim if it had struck two blank planchets at the same time you would not see an edge.

Yes there would be a rim, you have to understand the minting process.
The rim is put on the blank planchet by the upsetting machine before the coin is struck.
And as stated earlier, if two planchets did get struck at the same time,you would have an entirely different looking coin.
So for the second time, your coin is PMD, not an error.

If you weighed every planchet that was turned into a coin during 1979 , 1980 , and 1981 you would not get 3.24, 2.8 and 2.8 every single time. There is going to be some fluctuations and I believe 0.01 is an appropriate fluctuation weather it be 2.9 or 2.7. I am getting this coin certified I will post the results for those who are curious. Thanks for all your input, very much appreciated.

YOU WILL BE WASTING YOUR MONEY !!

You can see the obvious scratch marks, then someone scratched the "rectangle" with something else.

Planchets are blank and smooth before striking (I have some), not all marked up, and they have a rim, which would hit against the other planchet's rim and squish towards the middle, not disappear.

I don't know why some people waste our time on here.
No matter how many people more knowledgeable tell them the
right answer, they still insist that they are right.
If the OP wants to waste his money getting it graded, then
I say go ahead it's not my loss.
I'm sure this will be the last we hear of this coin.

Like those file marks aren't an obvious clue! The TPGs should put out a "greatest hits" of goofy coin submissions!

There is only one certifier in Canada who handles errors, and that is CCCS. It will cost you about $20 for a single coin submission (plus shipping).

NGC and PCGS in the US do certify errors, and with the CAN-US currency exchange, and shipping costs, it will cost you $75 (approximately) for a single coin submission.

Or, you could listen to the experts here, me being one of them (I collect Canadian small cent errors):

- your coin was not struck on a split planchet
http://goccf.com/t/330437

- your coin was not struck through another coin (note the rim on the blank side)
http://goccf.com/t/271556

You need to learn about the minting process, before you can make such bold assumptions. Even blank planchets, have raised rims.
http://goccf.com/t/194021

You have a full rim on one side, and no rim on the other, therefore it was NOT struck on a Type 1 blank.

You have a normal coin whereby someone filed or ground down the reverse. I could make that same "error" in about 10 minutes in my garage. It is junk, it is worth nothing more than a conversation piece...

Transition strikes do occur, but are uncommon:

Lastly, to CCF - there are a ton of threads here on errors, so take advantage of the CCF search engine and open your mind - when it comes to errors, we are all always learning...

It is not, the range of tolerance is much more than 0.1 grams. Go ahead and open a mint roll of uncirculated coins from any year and weigh them... the results might surprise you...
