Front seems totally normal, back is smooth with what apears to be the number 6 or 9 stamped into it.
It is also underweight 2.94 grams instead of 2.11 so I'mánot sure what kind of planchet is was made with but it is definetly not steel or silver.

to CCF. If 1976 it should weigh 3.11 grams, +/- .13 grams mint tolerance. Your coin is not an error it is PMD=post mint damage.

The metal is copper, the damage looks intentional. This is not a mint error, it is post mint damage ( PMD). I'd still like to see the full reverse if possible.

to the CFF!

to the CCF! The absence of a rim in the reverse shows it is intentional damage.

Yes, full and sharp photo of the 'other side' would be helpful. Thanks.

@casper, first welcome to CCF. Second, in the olden days, this was done to create a love token. In this case, someone seems to have made a numbered tag of some sort from this cent.
