We cannot tell what you have exactly without better photos. Take it out of the holder... it has rusted staples for goodness sake! p.s.- tell us where you see/think it has an error?

nice off center coin. how do you know that the date is a 1964? as opposed to any other Memorial cent?
I would be updating that 2x2 holder though. the corrosion can destroy the coin eventually.

The coin is only half of the stamp on it. Sorry if I'm not saying it correctly

YES! Replace that 2x2 holder, it is not a good environment for it to be in! It appears to be out-of-round as well? What are the edges like? Rough or smooth?

Nice off center strike. Needs a new 2x2. Coop might be able to narrow down the date for you.

Hope to see large and sharp photos with the coin out of the 2x2. Looks like a very nice off center strike.

I usually go one size larger on the coin in 2X2's, that way you can see the edge of the coin easier with the once size larger. (Meaning ,Nickel on a Cent coin)

Yep.
Off Center Oblong
Get it in a good 2x2.
That would probably be what your grandparents would want-Protect the coin.
Keep the old holder for keeps sake. Far away from the coin
My opinion.
