Looking to sell some of my modest collection and I'm not sure how to describe this penny.

Hi Paul, welcome to the forum. You have a 1970's Canadian Penny. It appears to have been either struck through a lot of grease or it could be some sort of die cap strike (where there was something between your coin and the die.

it also may have been a science experiment with acid being put on the one side. I am sure one of the error experts will see this and comment on it.

Looks like it was struck through a late stage die cap
but I will let one of our error experts decide.
