1963 Canada Cent

This one may have that die clash variety known as the Hanging 3. It is just a die clash and has no extra value but it is hard to see on darker coins. There should be a curve on top of the 3 that looks like an extra 3. I kind of see one on this coin but it maybe dirt.
The mark is actually part of the queen's head that got pressed onto the reverse die. It then gets stamped on every other coin made. This is an error but not a real collectible type. It is a common variety that can be seen on every coin type.

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 1 Cent / Canada
Year: 1963
Mintage: 279,076,334
Metal: 98% Copper, 0.5% Tin, 1.5% Zinc
Value: $0.03 in Very-Fine
