The planchet was damaged before the strike, the lamination peel on the obverse rim shows a corresponding weakness on the reverse. The obverse rim also show a lack of metal available to push up the rim fully.

Blowhole errors are somewhat common in Canadian small cents, particularly from 1977 to 1981, but this is the first I have seen in a large cent. This one is a nice, problem-free AU coin.

Nice find.
First I have seen in a LargeCent also.
Wonder if Bill has one in his massive collection
although I know he doesn't't collect errors.

I've never looked for one and most of my Ed's and Geo's haven't been looked at, except for a couple certain dates with varieties. I was a variety collector, not one for errors or other anomalies, so lts of what I have/had went right through my fingers .
