Hello and Welcome!

Well, in looking at your cent, I'm thinking that it's post-minting damage.  I can think of no way that your coin received that kind of mark during the striking process.  However, I can easily see how a counting or rolling machine damaged that coin in that way sometime in the course of its 72 year life. 

I hope that this helps!

No problem, I'm glad to help.  Keep hunting, there is good stuff out there to be found by someone who is determined.

Better luck next time!
