How could the following coin be explained as a genuine mint error? All I have are the images from the eBay listing.

To my novice eye and experience that doesn't jive with something that would or could happen during minting. I'm suggesting it's something post minting process. PMD.

struck through an elliptical planchet or split planchet? the pictures make it hard to tell what's going on with the reverse. we need an expert!

Legit enough that I was considering putting a bid in on it...

Looks like it was struck over the collar, thus making the strike on the selected areas. Probably the collar was broken during the process. Note the strong arcs. The coin is probably bent. The thickness of the collar prevented the strike on the reverse central area but reached the reverse die slightly.

...but how can most of the coin be minted on one side, and just a little on the other side? I'm having trouble envisioning this.

Note the strike itself is not off center.

Mind you, the images shown are the obverse and reverse of a single coin.

Two blank planchets entered the chamber together, the top one slightly off-center from the bottom one?

That would explain the weakness on the obverse where the two coins didnt overlap

I emailed Mike Byers, and he says it is a legitimate mint error.

I still don't understand it, but if Mike says it is real, then it probably is.

you should listen to others as well. Stop reporting things you do not know or understand.

If you are talking to me, I didn't report it. I'm just trying to understand how it could come into being at the mint.

Looks legit, but it's definitely not from the 1960s. I am about 99.9% sure it is either 1980 or 1981.

That effigy and legend is not found on any 1960's Canadian small cents.

These are the effigies and legends used from 1965 to 1981
