Never seen a coin like this. Is this real or did someone alter it to look like an error?

Not even altered to look like an error. Someone just took a hammer to it.

Perhaps a ball-peen hammer, or similar blunt device.

Damage is damage no matter how it happened.

Just a spender. (It is a copper melt coin also)

I agree, damage from a ball-peen hammer, certainly post mint.
