Yes someone having fun with this cent, perhaps as the first step in an effort to make it into a dime for use in a vending machine.

Deliberate post mint damage. It is against the law to knowingly and intentionally deface US currency.

to CCF. Someone clipped your coin to make a fuse for their 67 Camero.

I thought it was only illegal to deface them to pass them as a different denomination.
