Yea, agreed it's not a mint error as that is just damage from some type of cutting tool with no added value. I ceased to be amazed long ago at what people will do to coins. And so you know, coins are not printed, they are struck at a coining press or machine.

I agree as well that this is intentional damage, either made by an unsuccessful attempt to cut the coin or it was put in some type of pinch holder. There is nothing in the mint process that would produce that effect.

And for future reference, bills are printed, coins are struck.
