Not an error, it is PMD
There is no way for that to happen during the striking of the
coin and as well you can see where the metal is displaced.

Just damage, probably deliberate.

ey up jimmyd
i am not sure what I am looking at this why I am posting my coins for hope some one tells me what they are in error or not error and to be honest about anything that is to be seen on a coin that I post lol.
I have collected hundreds of coins in the years but don't have a clue about what I'm actually looking at. only just starting to learn the in and outs of coins.
but not saying that I am correct, but as an ex shopfitter where I have drilled into a lot of metal, the holes look different to the one on here. better view with magnifying glasses. one end of the hole is also deeper as where the other side is more or less flat the to coin it self.
thanks jimmyd

IMHO, someone tried to drill a hole or punch something onto the coin and it had seen some circulation after that attempted process.

with the above.

I am old enough to remember big pre-decimal pennies in circulation, and I'm afraid they got very badly treated, especially by schoolkids. The temptation of a coin with a very low face value but a very large surface area meant that they were routinely kicked around schoolyards, placed onto railroad tracks, crushed between rocks, drilled or made the 'victims' of chemistry experiments when the science teacher wasn't looking. It was always a shame to find a key date penny that had been deliberately damaged. I seem to remember reading the results of a coin survey in an old magazine (circa 1971) where the author said that about 5% of the 20,000 pennies he examined had post-mint damage.
