There are a few possibilities but I honestly can't be positive on any of them. Can't find anything similar either. Any information would be appreciated.

Totally Agree with the above but can you add a zoomed pic of just the date?

Yes, took a hit. Copper, being a relatively soft metal, can be moved/re-shaped when hit.

It looks like vending/gum machine damage. The angle of the damage on the 2 is parallel to the rim.

I like that explanation! See cents with this type of date damage frequently on the forum.
