Re: Pre-1966 Pennies

Here in the states I can buy them at less than face. The local coin shop sells them at .75 for the exchange rate now and then at a .8 after that.I think they are worth more in melt value than they are in numismatic value. See https://www.coinflation.com/canada/

Re: any ideas

To me, it looks like something whacked it that had a round shape and an indent that made the "point" on the coin as it was hit. Definitely PMD. Thanks for the answer.
