My Grandfather was an avid coin collector and when he passed, I inherited a few...This Canadian penny being one of them...I'm curious as to how many people have seen one that may be similar or if anyone knows more about it...Thank you

to CCF. Sorry to say it is just post mint damage. What does the other side look like?

It is whats called PMD meaning someone did the damage after it was released from the mint.
It would decrease the value of the coin.
Secret Santa look here to see what I have.

technically a cent, and not a penny,

and sadly only worth 1 cent due to the PMD that others have referred to.

please post the others you have inherited, you never know what's to be found

I'd say some kind of punch, since it's only on one side.
